Recruiting Step Two: Let People Know! Let Families and Organizations know your Pack Fun Activities Plan!

Posted on Mar 20 2018 - 5:53pm

After Recruiting Step One (Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like), get onto Step Two:  Let People Know - Promote your Fun Events!  

When you Advertise your Activities ... you Promote your Pack -- so let your families, schools and community organizations 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 -- share with current families, schools, groups and let prospective families and friends know too.  

Recruiting Tools are More than Flyers and Yard Signs:  Use Photos, Facebook and other Social Media, plus Old Media.  Photos of your Scouts having fun are best (so friends can see friends and want to join up -- like these from a recent 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 about how Scouting is fun and encourage them to show it on facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter.  

Post printed Flyers with your pictures or your pictures or wild pictures and your calendar of fun activities to let families know.  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.  Got families ready to join?  Get Applications Signed.  … 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 …

Cub Scout Summer Resident Camp - Overnight Camp

Posted on Mar 20 2018 - 5:45pm

Take it from those who have been there ...  Summer Camp is the most fun thing you and your son can do during Cub Scout Years.  See this Cub Scout Summer Camp information.  Four 3 night options in July (July 2-5, July 6-9, July 10-13, July 13-16).  For Scouts signing up this spring or summer ... they can go too!  Program elements for Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, so this spring's Kindergarten through 4th Graders will have plenty to do there!

New Online Youth Protection Training -- All Leaders Must Complete by October 1

Posted on Mar 20 2018 - 5:45pm

By October 1, 2018, all new and currently registered leaders will be required to complete BSA’s brand new Youth Protection Training (also known as "YPT2") -- see more here.  As previously announced, YPT2 is now available via BSA’s "Learn Center" -- and now the modules have been streamlined ot allow quicker view with less "loading" delay.  A big difference (and complicating factor) is that there isn't a "one and done" 28 minute video any longer.  Instead, there are four modules, you have to take them all, and pass a quiz in the final module.  The first module is "Overview & Policies", the second is "Sexual Abuse", the third is "Bullying", and the final is called "YPT Certification" and includes a quiz.  Very different from the former look -- first module (Overview & Policies) has a mixture of graphic slides and professionally shot videos (think PBS "Frontline").  Evidently, a syllabus for "live" courses will be available in June, 2018.
