To see the "Trailer" on this development, see this Online Registration YouTube Video from the BSA's Multimedia Department Channel.  This has been tested last year in select councils, and a "first wave" of Councils are already "live" using this tool.

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

Posted on May 12 2017 - 10:05am

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.

... kindergarten boys and their families are ready to join your Pack!  They can become "Tigers" right as school ends, and go to Twilight Camp, Cub Adventure Camp, and your fun familiy activities (like fishing or swimming at the local pool or movies on the green or go see the 4th of July fireworks or go to a Braves game or biking or whatever is fun for you) so ... why not be in touch with them now and get them hooked on Scouting?  How? 

  • Maybe have a "year end" pack party with a graduation ceremony into the next rank ... and welcome new Tigers as part of that.   
  • Have a Cub Scout pack participation in year end school events. 
  • Get Twilight Camp information out to school families.  They can join up and have Twilight Camp as their first event!
  • Plan some fun family activities ... if it's fun for kids, fun for families, and safe, then it's Cub Scouting!

Knowledge is Good ... Training Gives you Knowledge ...

Posted on May 7 2017 - 6:39pm

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: 

  • 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")

Go get some knowledge!
