Things the New MyDotScouting Tools Can Do For You ...

Posted on Sep 16 2014 - 12:13pm

With the recent announcement about expansion of access to MyDotScouting Tools on the site https://my.scouting.org/# (also accessible through www.MyScouting.org), there are many things that more leaders can do to make life easier in your Units.  A Key 3 person (Unit Leader, Committee Chair and Chartered Organization Representative) can add other registered leaders as helpers in certain roles (three people can have full access as “Key 3 Delegates”, and access to Training Tools can be given to a "Training Chair", and any other registered leader as members of the "Training Committee").  What can you do in those roles?  The Key 3 and “Key 3 Delegates” can access the "Member Manager" tool and pull a current Unit Roster of Youth, Adults or All, including a list of BSA numbers.  This helps you track the recording of Youth and Adult Applications you deliver during this recruiting season.  Key 3, Key 3 Delegates, and anyone listed as "Youth Protection Champion", "Training Chair" or "Training Committee" can access the "Training Manager", see the status of Adult Training and record Training that has been completed for Registered Leaders!  This means that if / when your unit does a "live" Youth Protection Training to avoid the "2 year expirations" that come up this year, if you are listed in those roles, and have access to the site https://my.scouting.org/# (because your BSA number is in your www.MyScouting.org profile), you can record the Training and get those regisitered leaders on the "YPT Complete" list!  Where Units are known to have key people helping the Key 3, additions of Key 3 Delegates have been made already to help you get up and running.  If you have questions, contact the District Commissioner.

Congratulations Packs 1341, 373, 631, 1030, 172, 7250, 2147, 3310, 44 ...

... because you have newly Trained Leaders, namely Ron Moody and Tomhas Walker of 1341, Monica Taylor of 373, Tabia Akintobi and Harold Jenkins of 631, Eric Marus of 1030, Allison Noel of 172, David Smith of 7250Duane Banks of 2147 and Victouria Welborn of Soapstone Ridge, who attended the Cub Leader Training on September 13 in College Park.  Congratulations also to attendees August 16 in College Park :Brad Whitaker of Pack 44Marvin Webb, Kashna Fletcher, Lissette Rodriguez and Lee Reid of Pack 3310, and Bob Bickerstaff and Trippe Davis of Pack 631, with 631's Josh Flannigan and Bill Lyman assisting.  This training is specially constructed to teach the "team" of parents who are going to "play the game of Scouting" with the Pack, so that whether you're a Den Leader or a Committee Member or Cubmaster or just someone who helps them, you will understand how a Pack can bring the fun of Cub Scouting.  Look for another Training, sometime in October ... bring your possible parent helpers to one of those, to get them started!  This program works best if several parents and leaders attend together and collaborate on how they will deliver the promise of Scouting to their families.  

Congratulations Troops 3499, 631, 7250, 150, 641, 54 ...
