Six Steps for Sustainable Recruiting for your Unit

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 12:56pm

Here’s six steps to a successful and sustainable plan for recruiting new families into your Cub Scout Pack … because every Pack wants more active leaders, and just about every Pack wants more youth and their families to join.  Key idea:  successful and sustainable recruiting happens by action now by leaders and parents in the Unit.  If your recruiting plan begins and ends on Sign Up Night, your recruiting will likely not be sustainable.  To help with recruiting by leaders and parents (hey, parents want more leaders too!), follow these Six Steps to Successful and Sustainable Recruiting from our Recruiting Tools page and in the Leader’s Guide to Recruiting:

More Training Now On Line for Troops and Crews

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 12:47pm

For Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews, much of what it takes to be considered a trained leader is now on line through 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 in your "First 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").  Of course, you can't share stories when taking those classes unless you're talking to yourself, so be sure to find time and places to chat at camp, along the trail, at meetings or roundtables, and consider virtual roundtables like http://scouter.com/ or http://scouts-l.org/, where you can gather gems though sometimes you'll get noise (like in other locales).

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.
