Recruiting for Boy Scout Troops ... Go. There's nothing stopping you

Posted on Sep 18 2017 - 10:02am

Troops -- and Scouts in Troops -- should be ready, willing and able to recruit boys, 6th Graders and others age 11 or above ... see this posting on "Bryan's Blog" for tips, and the attached if you want to start with flyers.  (P.S.: Your Boy Scouts can probably create better photo / video / social media messages for thier friends if you let them)  Or you can show them this Atlanta Area Council Movie Trailer from the expanding AAC YouTube site.  And from across the pond, see this video, which is really really well done, as is this one

Training Options for Parents ...

Posted on Sep 12 2017 - 5:47pm

Trained Leaders have many super powers, and are more attractive.  And the more you know, the easier it is.  So see our Leader Training page for many ways to gain the super power of knowledge.  Here's some specifics:

  • Our Cub Parent and Leader Orientation (which covers the intro training for all Pack roles) has one more date ... see the "Event Registration" list to the right.
  • See the Council Training Calendar for live dates for Training around Atlanta, including some from nearby Councils.  
  • Wood Badge is an intensive and fun course that will form lifelong friendships with your fellow leaders, all designed to develop leadership skills and promote a deeper, more dedicated involvement in Scouting. Specific course information can be found at Atlanta Wood Badge Courses, and for general information about “Wood Badge” Training, see Wood Badge Background.
  • Many courses are at  the National On Line Training site at ScoutingU (same login as at My.Scouting.Org -- note that they have created many "short" modules for training, so that you can prioritize on the ones you want most ... and they suggest which ones you take "Before the First Meeting" and "Within 30 Days", and for help, see these YouTube Videos about how to use the site: "Add Training to My Learning", "Course Catalog and Search" and "My Learning Plan")

District Awards Announcement for District Banquet to be scheduled

Posted on Sep 11 2017 - 10:12am

From Micah Womack: "It is early but, “it is better to be too early, than too late and have to catch up.” So with that said, this is just a reminder to think about who you would like to nominate this year for awards. It is never too early to start looking around for those volunteers that deserve to be recognized.

Program Help for Parents and Cub Scout Leaders: Bobcat Adventure Plans

Posted on Sep 11 2017 - 10:00am

Did you know ... our page called "Getting Started: Plans for First Meetings + Bobcat Rank" includes some "Bobcat Adventure Plans" to help parents and leaders get their Scouts to the Bobcat Rank (and let returning Scouts brush up on that and help their new Scout friends).   Those should have been in the Den Leader Guides, but were left out ... but they are here for you to use!  You can do these as part of "out and about" activities, not just in "den meetings".
