The New-Leader Guide: Tips to Get You Started Down the Scouting Trail

All over America, students are trying to navigate new hallways, remember their locker combinations and find the lunchroom. As a new Scouter, you know how they feel.

Don’t worry; we know how you feel, too. We at Scouting magazine have been where you are and understand how intimidating the job can be, so we created this handy guide to help you through the first months of your Scouting career. Half of the tips stem from our own experience; the other half come from Scouters across the country who responded to survey questions on our Facebook page. We appreciate their input and look forward to the day that you, too, start sharing your wisdom with Scouting’s next crop of rookie leaders.
