What's Better for a Troop than Boy Scouts who are NYLT Grads? Scouts who are NYLT Staff!!

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 2:09pm

See this Announcement about NYLT Staff recruiting.  Because a Troop is a “Boy Run” organization, the Scouts need training on leadership.  In addition to training and guidance from Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters, Troops can conduct Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) and the Atlanta Area Council offers Youth Leader Training Options for Boy Scouts such as NYLT: National Youth Leader Training.  NYLT is a six day course is intended for senior patrol leaders, patrol leaders, and other youth leaders. It is conducted by the council in a camping situation. See this NYLT site for more information.

Good News ... BSA Help Desk will now Fix your Multiple My.Scouting Profile situation

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 1:39pm

If you are a Registered Unit or District Leader, and find that using your my.scouting.org profile doesn't connect you to your Unit or District role because you can't input your BSA ID Number into your profile due to that number being in another profile that you can't access ... help is now here.  Note that having your BSA ID Number in your profile is what Key Leaders need to see and use many tools, like Training Manager, Member Manager, Tour Plans, and other data, and for Youth Protection Training you take in that profile to connect to your Unit.  Without the number, the database thinks you don't belong in your unit.  So if you haven't been able to insert your number, that makes life hard.

Good News:  After not being willing to "merge" profiles in the past, now MyScouting@Scouting.org writes and says they can help: “We will be able to assist each of your volunteers in combining multiple My.Scouting accounts.  To do this ask each person to send the following to MyScouting@Scouting.org so we can research and be certain to only merge accounts belonging to them: 

  • Name on BSA registration: ___________
  • Council name/number:  Atlanta Area Council/092
  • Zip code: ___________
  • Date of Birth: ___________
  • Phone number: ___________"

 If you are not sure of what is on your BSA Registration showing on your charter, email the Webmaster.  Oh, and be patient ... the Help Desk may take a couple of days to respond.  They also write "With this information we should be able to assist each person individually.  my.scouting.org is best experienced using the latest version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Also works with the latest version of Safari and Internet Explorer (v11).  If you need additional assistance, please call us at 972-580-2489. (Advocates are available from 7:00A to 7:00P CT Monday - Friday; after this time you will be transferred to our voicemail which will be answered the following day) or send a reply email to MyScouting@Scouting.org.”
