It’s fall! In much of the country that means football. For Scouters, it also means recruitment.
This fall thousands of boys and girls will be joining Cub Scout packs. And, come February, thousands of youth — both boys and girls — will be joining Scouts BSA troops. It is an exciting time for them, their families and their units. Everyone is looking forward to the fun of Scouting.
If your unit doesn’t have one yet, now is the time to recruit someone. All you need is a friendly person who is excited about Scouting and is not serving in another capacity in the unit. Having someone there to say “Welcome” and able to anticipate questions goes a long way to ensuring that the family gets engaged quickly. And engaged families mean more help and more help means opportunity for a better program and a growing unit. All of that leads to more fun for everyone.
Yours for better Scouting,
