District Functions ... how are they doing? What should change? Do you want to Help?

Want to help beyond your unit?  See this, or take this survey.  District Volunteers and Professionals aim to help units serve youth.  How are your District Staff and Volunteers doing?  Feel free to complete this short survey.  And feel free to give feedback in this Roundtable Survey ... even if you haven't attended.

What's in the "More Help For Leaders" page?

Posted on Apr 17 2017 - 5:35pm

Well, more help for Leaders and Parents putting on the Scouting Program for our Youth.  Help like: 

  • Finances.  See our Unit Finances page for information about fundraising and other finance resources.
  • Scoutreach Assistance.  The Atlanta Area Council has financial aid and other resources described on the ScoutReach Resources page.
  • Recruiting.  See our Recruiting Tools page for great ideas to help you recruit new families.
  • Activity Ideas.  Want ideas about Pack or Troop Activities ... see our Month by Month Activity Ideas page, and see what our Units are Doing.
  • Den Adventure Plans.  Cub Scout Den Adventures (they are Adventuresnot merely "meetings") are very critical ... we have lots of ideas at Cub Scout Adventure Plans, including scanned versions of the Den Leader Guides and resources.
  • Service Projects.  Most every Unit does Service Projects, and that page has ideas.
  • Journey to Excellence Recognition.  Some Units use the Journey to Excellence plan to improve.
  • Commissioners (Unit Service).  Volunteers who help units beyond their "home" units are Commissioners ... see Commissioner Service for ways we help.
  • Charter Renewal.  Every Unit needs to renew their charter by the end of the year, and our Unit Charter Renewal page has all your resources for that.
  • On Line News.  We share links to Boys Life & Scouting Magazines and more, like http://scoutingwire.org/.
  • Contacts.  Contact District Leaders and Adults in other units through our Roster.  Key leaders are also listed in the attachment at our About Scouting & How to Join page.
  • Training.  Trained Leaders have more fun, get more out of the Program, and help more youth. See Leader Training for ways to become trained and have more fun.
  • Uniforms and Gear.  Many Scouts and Units need help with uniforms and gear, and so our Uniform + Gear Bank page has a plan for donating and distributing uniforms and gear.
  • Advancement.  See our Advancement page for resources on Boy Scout and Cub Scout rank advancement and awards.
