Boy Scouts have a new way to learn about civic leadership through the life of renowned general and two-term president Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The Boy Scouts of America and the Eisenhower Presidential Museum and Library in Abilene have developed two programs to teach young people about being involved in democracy.

The museum will offer an all-day program on the value of civic involvement for Boy Scouts working for their citizenship merit badge. The first program is scheduled for Sept. 11. Scouts from Abilene, Salina and surrounding areas will be the first to participate.

The other initiative will let Boy Scouts traveling through Kansas earn a patch by completing an educational guide on Eisenhower's life and times at the museum.
