How Is Your Unit Doing ... How Can We Help?

Posted on Jul 5 2016 - 9:12am

One way to Help Units in our District is through these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools (or use this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Troops, and this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Packs, with the same questions), adapted from the versions at my.scouting.org to include helpful resources as you review how your Unit is doing.  If you use these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools, feel free to submit to your commissioner or the District Commissioner for a discussion and recognition of how you're doing!  

New Cub Leader Training Classes ... Sign Up Now.

Posted on Jul 5 2016 - 9:11am

Space is limited, so sign up your team now for our next Pack Leadership Team Training Classes on Saturday, August 13 with an encore performance on Saturday, September 10.  Trained leaders have more fun, and training is for everyone, because in Cub Scouting, you're either a Den Leader, or your job is to help Den Leaders, and we train for both so that your Pack Leadership team can work together and be successful.  

Recruiting Step Three: Shout it Out! Let Families know your Pack Event Plan!

Posted on Jul 5 2016 - 9:10am

After Recruiting Step One: Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like, and while you move into Step Two: Start to Recruit more Leaders and Helpers, also take Step Three:  Shout it Out!  Let Families know your Pack Event Plan!  When you Advertise your Activities ... you Promote your Pack -- so let your families know your calendar of fun activities early to get them excited (don't worry if you don't have every date organized with leaders and details yet).  Don't keep your fun activity plans secret.  Let prospective families and friends know too.  Recruiting Tools Need to Use More than Flyers and Yard Signs:  Use Photos, Facebook, and Social Media and Old Media.  Photos of your Scouts having fun are best (so friends can see friends and want to join up -- like these from the 2016 Pinewood Derby).  So use any you can … flyers, emails, posters, facebook, calls, PTA, Car Pool, grocery store, barber shop, church ... encourage your families to tell others (and show it on facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter) about how Scouting is fun.  More Families = More Fun.  Use printed Flyers with your pictures or your pictures or wild pictures and your calendar of fun activities to let families know – be sure they get out there so you can Advertise your Activities and Promote your Pack.  Hand ‘em out (with permission) at school (in classrooms, at the front desk, at bus/car pool, at PTA events), at church, at city hall, at parks and rec centers, stores, restaurants – wherever families go.  Get them posted on websites and facebook sites (school, church, city, neighborhood), email lists, twitter, family to family emails and facebook and twitter.  Share pictures and video of fun stuff Scouts do.  Need help with Flyers?  DEs can help with printing.  District volunteers can help – email flyers@southfultonscouting.com.  Don’t forget posters, yard signs, kid to kid cards, stickers, door hangers.  Talk it up.  Call families.  … see all Six Recruiting Steps for more, because a Pack with fun activities should have a presence at school and in the community to help Shout it Out …

Recruiting Step Four: School and Community Presence -- Be Seen, and Show your School and Community What You Do!

Posted on Jul 5 2016 - 9:09am

OK, so you're doing Recruiting Step One (a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like), and Step Two (you Start to Recruit more Leaders and Helpers), and Step Three (Let Families know your Pack Event Plan!), now let Schools and the Community at large know too!  Check with your Schools and Community sites about what you can do, because "Pack promotion" is more than just "Yard Signs" ... those are good, but use more to reach more ... social media, school/church websites and email lists, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest ... and encourage your families to "like" scouting on their favorite social media and share pictures and video to let other families know.  Have one or more "end of School Year" pack fun events like a Pack Party to welcome new Tigers and classmates and friends and "graduate" your Scouts into the their next rank level.
