Did You Help Someone? Let the Community Know that Scouts Help!

Posted on Apr 1 2017 - 11:31am

Scouts Help!  Yes, when you do a Service Project, the BSA wants you to enter your Service Hours (see the JTE site for how to enter "Service Hours"), but even more important is:  let your community know that Scouts Help!  Many units have Facebook and other Social Media pages (we run a list here) and even more leaders ... what's better than bragging about how your Scouts Help!  Leaders: this helps you recruit too -- when your Scouts Help, let your Schools and Communities know what you do.  When you use photos, be sure to receive written authorization from those Scout's families (directly or as a signup for the event, or in the release signed by parents on Part A the current BSA Health and Medical Record), and never list a Scout's full name, first names only (or no names).  And there's more:  the Atlanta Area Council Activity Committee would like to see your Unit's Good Turns -- they ask that you please send pictures and a short write-up about your unit's service and you may be featured in a publication or on social media.  Send to Patrick Burns, AAC Community Service Coordinator at patrick19@comcast.net

Confirmed: Tour and Activity Plan no Longer Required

Posted on Apr 1 2017 - 11:06am

The Tour and Activity Plan will no longer be required for any Scouting activity.  Safety is required.  The Plan is not.  See the National FAQ Announcement for more, and this Bryan on Scouting Blog.  

Did We Miss Out On Scouting for Food? No - Do It Any Time!!

Posted on Apr 1 2017 - 11:03am

Scouting for Food can be done any time ... when your Unit wants to help.  See the Scouting for Food page and the Scouting for Food Guidebook for how to run this Service Project, and get patches to recognize your Scout participants.  Why do it this way?  A decentralized approach enables all units to choose which dates to carry out their Scouting for Food campaign and to be able to choose the benefiting organization.  Scouting for Food is not only a way to encourage our Scouts to collect tons of food to help support local food pantries, but also a lifelong lesson on how to service our community and provide good citizenship.  For patches, just submit an expected roster or number of all Scouts planning to participate in your Unit's project to the Atlanta Area Council Scouting for Food Chair, Tina Kerr at kerrtina770@yahoo.com, to coordinate pick up at the Program Center. 

Tour and Activity Plan Requirements Discontinued

Posted on Mar 28 2017 - 6:38pm

In breaking news, effective April 1, the Tour and Activity Plan will no longer be required for any Scouting activity.  This has been broadcast in many councils, was announced at the Atlanta Area Council Program Planning Kickoff last Saturday, and has a common FAQ document recreated on many Council websites.  This does not appear to be an April Fools joke, unlike this one about limits on length of knives, this one about virtual reality Scouting, this one about super-sized Merit Badges, and this one about a change to membership standards for interspecies participation, or this press release from last year about Bubble Ball which is a fake press release about a real thing, or this note about ScoutSnapChat which didn't happen but might.
