Internet Advancement

Online advancement entry is here!  The Central Georgia Council is excited to announce that units can now use Internet Advancement to record their youth member advancements from any online location – at home or at the office.  You will find this new method to be easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information.  Click on the button to start now!


Internet Advancement makes it easy for unit leadership to record awards, ranks, and merit badges to youth via an online process.  This system is separate from Internet Rechartering, but uses a similar concept.
At any time during the year, the unit advancement processor from each active unit will be able to record advancements to youth member records.  And, they’ll also be able to print a unit roster any time.  The roster is the most current information from ScoutNET, and it will include the person ID for each adult and youth member.


These are other reports available from Internet Advancement.


  • Unit Advancement Summary shows ranks, merit badges, and awards saved in each person record for current members of the unit.

  • Advancement Report lists each youth member that has new ranks, merit badges, and awards, if any.  This is the official unit Advancement Report to be signed and submitted to the office.

  • Unit Awards Summary lists the number of new ranks, merit badges, and awards by name as a shopping list.

  • Advancement Update Summary lists any ranks, merit badges, and awards that were already in the member record and were updated online.


The user password is the same password issued for Good Turn for America.  If you have misplaced your password, you may call 1-800-272-9386, Ext. 103 to request a new one.  The unit will assign an adult to record advancements.  Ranks must be recorded based on program identification and in the correct rank and date sequence.  Only the Eagle Scout rank cannot be awarded by this process.  Awards to be entered will not include nominated awards, such as those for meritorious action, and awards that are controlled by other organizations, even if approved for uniform wear.  As BSA policies for rank entry are enforced, what units enter will meet these requirements.
