The LDS church and the Boy Scouts of America released a joint statement Tuesday night announcing that their more than 100 year partnership will come to a close December 21, 2019, due to the church's desire to create a youth program to serve its members globally. While most of the re-branding and changes will rollout in early 2019, several Cub Scout groups across the nation have opted to participate in an "Early Adopter Program" which is allowing girls to join immediately. The statement said the church wants to move forward with its own program that involves youth leadership and development.
The church plans to remain a partner of the Boy Scouts for boys ages 8 to 13 until the end of next year, when the transition to the new youth program will be finalized.
The Christian denomination and the scouting organization have been at odds since 2015 when the Boy Scouts agreed to allow gay troop leaders.

The Church removed 185,000 boys between the ages of 14 and 18 from the Boy Scouts past year, and plans to move its remaining 425,000 boys into a youth program it is working on.
Reactions to the news were mixed from Mormons who grew up scouting, working their way toward becoming Eagle Scouts. Many individual troops are chartered by faith-based organizations, however, and Mormons make up around 20 percent of its membership, according to The Washington Post.
The church's announcement also revealed that its existing program for girls will be shuttered and replaced by the new youth program, leading Mason and Bowman to predict that more parity could be in store for girls and boys even while the church stops short of allowing women in the lay priesthood. This move could have major ramifications for the organization. A new youth initiative program that will better suit a global church audience will be installed in its place. The church reportedly paid the same annual lump sum it paid to the BSA in 2017 to tiresome the impact of such a major loss of revenue, Deseret News reported.
