Atlanta Area Council Scouts BSA Troop Program Resources

Posted on Sep 18 2023 - 2:17pm

We hope that your Scouts BSA Troop programs are off to a great start this school year, and we want to be sure you are aware of resources to help you and your Scouts have a fun, exciting and rewarding program in the months to come.  Here are some key Scouts BSA Resources from the Atlanta Area Council and the National BSA to keep you on that trail:

National Troop Program Resources.  Did you know?  There are very good pages of resources for Scouts BSA Troops and Leaders – not just for Adult Leaders (advisors) but their Senior Patrol Leaders, Patrol Leaders and other officers who want to have a dynamic program - not the "same old, same old".

Atlanta Area Council Resources.  Includes the following:

Service Ideas: Service Projects and Simple Ways to Help

Posted on Sep 18 2023 - 2:15pm

A Scout is Helpful.  The fuller explanation of this Scout Law is: "Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward".  To help Packs, Dens, Troops, Crews, Scouts and their families, we can share ideas about ways to help.  Our service project page is a compendium of ideas about what Scouts can do, from large "service projects" that can be organized by Scouts and/or Units, to existing service opportunities that you can join in, as well as small ways that a Scout can help others (for younger Scouts, with help from the family).  More here.

Helping Units in Your District

Posted on Sep 12 2023 - 11:36am

District?  Council?  What are the Possible Committee and Commissioner Roles Supporting Units, Leaders and Youth:  Scouts, Scouters and Scouting Units are part of a worldwide brotherhood of Scouting, and we gather together at National, Territory and Council events, Multi District eventsDistrict Events, and events just between Units that connect to do things together. The Atlanta Area Council organizes units in Clayton County and South Fulton County as a District called “Southern Crescent”.  Districts are responsible for carrying out four standard functions: programunit servicemembership and finance.

  • The program functions concentrate on helping Scouting units through training adult volunteers, youth advancement support, camping promotion, community service promotion, multi-unit activities (such as camp o rees, cub twilight camp, scout fairs, pinewood derbies, shooting sports events), and recognition of youth and adults, all of which activities are “unit support” to help units do more.
  • The unit service function of “commissioners” provides coaching and consultation by volunteers for unit adults to help ensure the success of every Scouting unit -- so commissioners stay abreast of and/or are involved in nearly all district unit support functions, and have a communication function to ensure units know of good program support opportunities -- all designed to support Membership growth and retention.
  • The membership function strives for growth through new members and leaders joining existing units and (where needed) growth through the organization of new Scouting units – this must work closely with unit service and program areas (like training, activities and commissioner service) to help units be successful.
  • The finance function supports units in fundraising and can help with financial practices, and sees that the district provides its share of funds to the total council operating budget.

Paid professionals, including District Executives and District Directors, support these functions.

In our "Ways to Volunteer in the District to Help Units" page are some ways that volunteers can help "beyond" just one Unit through these functions.  Want to Help?  Contact the District Chair or District Executive or take this Point and Click Survey, as nearly every role could use more help, assistants, potential successors.  Also, teams can form based on interests, plus new services, events and programs may arise if someone has the passion for it ... contact information for current district leaders and committee and commissioners are found in the "Adult Leader" section of the Roster.  email the webmaster if you need Login information.
