What's in the "More Help For Leaders" page?

Posted on Nov 12 2016 - 9:22am

Well, more help for Leaders and Parents putting on the Scouting Program for our Youth.  Help like:

  • Finances.  See our Unit Finances page for information about fundraising and other finance resources.
  • Scoutreach Assistance.  The Atlanta Area Council has financial aid and other resources described on the ScoutReach Resources page.
  • Uniforms and Gear.  Many Scouts and Units need help with uniforms and gear, and so our Uniform + Gear Bank page has a plan for donating and distributing uniforms and gear.
  • Advancement.  See our Advancement page for resources on Boy Scout and Cub Scout rank advancement and awards. 
  • Den Adventure Plans.  Cub Scout Den Adventures (they are Adventuresnot merely "meetings") are very critical ... we have lots of ideas at Cub Scout Adventure Plans, including scanned versions of the Den Leader Guides and resources.
  • Service Projects.  Most every Unit does Service Projects, and that page has ideas.
  • Journey to Excellence Recognition.  Some Units use the Journey to Excellence plan to improve.
  • Commissioners (Unit Service).  Volunteers who help units beyond their "home" units are Commissioners ... see Commissioner Service for ways we help.
  • Charter Renewal.  Every Unit needs to renew their charter by the end of the year, and our Unit Charter Renewal page has all your resources for that.
  • On Line News.  We share links to Boys Life & Scouting Magazines and more, like http://scoutingwire.org/.
  • Contacts.  Contact District Leaders and Adults in other units through our Roster.  Key leaders are also listed in the attachment at our About Scouting & How to Join page.
  • Training.  Trained Leaders have more fun, get more out of the Program, and help more youth. See Leader Training for ways to become trained and have more fun.
  • Recruiting.  See our Recruiting Tools page for great ideas to help you recruit new families.
  • Activity Ideas.  Want ideas about Pack or Troop Activities ... see our Month by Month Activity Ideas page, and see what our Units are Doing.

Are you Expiring? ... Don't Forget ... Youth Protection Must Be Updated Every Two Years.

Posted on Nov 12 2016 - 9:22am

Based on the Training Manager database at https://my.scouting.org/, just about every Pack, Troop and Crew has somebody who will need to get Youth Protection Training updated during this fall's Unit Recharter cycle -- and that means if your YPT will expire by March 1 of next year ... update it now, thanks, you're welcome!  See the District and Unit by Unit list of YPT Expirations here.  To take or re-take Youth Protection Training, access your profile at https://my.scouting.org/, and click the box that has "New to Scouting / Click hear to Take Training" above the Youth Protection Begins with You" logo.  That will load, and give you the Youth Proction Options for you (for most of us in Troops and Packs, it will be plain Youth Protection Training, but for Crews you may need Venturing Youth Protection Training), or in the Upper Left Corner click Menu, My Dashboard, which will take you to My Training.  Do not try to find Youth Protection Training in the "Learn Center".  We don't think it is found there.   

And be sure that your profile shows your BSA Member ID Number and shows you in the Atlanta Area Council (when you Login, click Menu in the upper left, click Legacy Tools in the drop down list, and in the new list click "Manage Member ID" ... if you are not sure what your BSA Member ID Number is, email the Webmaster).

If you try to put a BSA ID Number into your "Manage Member ID" and it won't let you, you probably have two "profiles" in https://my.scouting.org/, and likely the other one has your BSA Number.  If you can't access and use that, see this Announcement about how the National BSA IT Help Desk will merge your profiles if you work with them, and/or see this My.Scouting Troubleshooting Guide for
