This merit badge provides Scouts with opportunities to learn more about our world by encouraging them to explore information on diversity, equity, inclusion and ethical leadership — and to learn why these qualities are important in society and in Scouting.

The Citizenship in the Society Online Badge is Open to Life Scouts AGES 16-17 in ANY Council. We conduct the class according to the age bracket. This class is taught with a LIVE counselor and the class is interactive.

The process of earning this merit badge will be different, as it intentionally places the responsibility of research & identification of resources on the Scout instead of using a merit badge pamphlet.

• Scouts are encouraged to explore as deeply & broadly as you see fit for your personal learning & growth.

• Your merit badge counselor may, for certain requirements, ask you to identify your sources.

• Your counselor will not be providing you with answers or resources but will be engaging you in conversation to ask about what you have learned & how you plan to apply your new knowledge to your life as a Scout & as a good citizen in society.

• As you undertake these learnings, think about how you can demonstrate the values of the Scout Oath & Scout Law in your daily life.

Please read the description before registering.

The EPIC Difference:

• Classes taught by registered Badge Counselors who are experts in their field

• All Badge Counselors have current YPT Certification

• Dedicated support team to provide prompt answers before, during and after your class

• Class sizes are limited to 5 scouts to support an engaging and interactive learning environment, and to allow each Scout the opportunity to demonstrate completion of EACH requirement

Class Preparation

Scouts are expected to come prepared with answers to requirements to the best of their ability.

• A Positive Scouting Focus and Attitude!

• You will need a laptop or desktop computer, high-speed internet access, a web camera, and a microphone to participate in the live online class.

• A day prior to class, we will send a ZOOM link to the email address you registered with. This email will come from

• Test ZOOM at least one day prior to class.

• Log-in 10 minutes before your scheduled class time. Classes start on time.

• Class A Uniform is requested to be worn during this Online Badge Class.

• Bring supporting documentation of project work pertinent to this badge which may also include a Badge Workbook for reference with notes.

• It is unacceptable to come unprepared. You may use a Badge Workbook as a learning aid to help you prepare. Scouts are NOT required to use this learning aid in order to complete the badge but maybe required by the counselors on a specific circumstance.

• In case the workbook will be required by the counselor, answers should be typewritten or copied and pasted from the counselor's presentation materials, pamphlet or other authoritative sources. Parents MUST check the workbooks before submission.

• We will email you a digital Blue Card once you successfully complete all requirements. However, a Blue Card is not COMPLETE until your Unit Leader signs it. We recommend receiving approval to take the course. Once we send you the Blue Card pass it to your Unit Leader for final signatures - digital or ink? That is up to your Unit Leader.

• If you do not complete all of your requirements you will be given an incomplete or "partial" Blue Card and have until before your 18th birthday to complete any requirements. We highly recommend you complete the requirements sooner than later. We will support you until your requirements are complete. This part is the responsibility of the Scout.

    Timelier-Than-Ever Discussion Facilitated by Expert Counselors!

    I had the pleasure of completing this MB with EPIC. Being an MB that places Scout engagement and discussion in the center like no other, it is only necessary for the MBCs of this MB to be highly professional. Needless to say, MBC Ms. Broussard of EPIC was more than capable of leading this course in all regards - our class, which lasted for more than 6 hours, was a much-needed discussion in the year 2022, a candid exchange of diverse perspectives facilitated by our awesome MBC. As such, I would recommend EPIC unreservedly along with their highly qualified and capable counselors who will no doubt do an excellent job leading any MB.
