Volunteer Empowerment – Fostering Strong Units

By now, many of you have heard about the new MyScouting Tools. For those who haven’t, here’s a brief summary:

  • MyScouting Tools was developed and designed back in November 2012 to empower volunteers by providing easy-to-use, intuitive tools they can use to manage virtually all aspects of the programs and unit information. It was designed to make their job less time consuming by simplifying the administrative tasks of Scouting. For the first time, unit and district Key 3 were able to directly update BSA membership records in the field. Registered adults were also able to update their own profile information as well as view their training, access calendars, announcements, and print their membership cards.
  • In August 2013, MyScouting Tools version 2.0 (6th release) was launched providing more intuitive functionality and improved navigation. It’s fast and dynamic to fit on any mobile screen allowing volunteers to update information anytime, and anywhere they have an Internet connection. This helps free the council staff to focus on other council goals and opportunities, like membership growth.
