Fall Recruiting – Something for Everyone

Every year in the fall across the territory of Patriots’ Path Council more than 3,000 more youth try out Scouting by joining for the first time.

We ask that all volunteers and members do their part to make sure that those expressing interest in Scouting are welcomed and register in order to be able to receive the program that will help them achieve their full potential.

It is important that volunteer leaders do not hang on to applications more than absolutely necessary while families are joining.  Timely registration is very important not only for insurance reasons, but also for the ability to work on advancement, participate fully in all Scouting activities and also to prepare units for the charter renewal season.   When all the youth and adults are listed in the Scoutnet system the task of renewing the charter is immensely easier to do rather then trying to cross match applications in hand, excel or other lists, Scoutbook and/or other electronic systems.

Some easy steps to take to make sure your unit is doing all it can to recruit for your unit are found in the Unit Playbook https://ppcbsa.org/wp-content/uploads/BSA-Fall-Recruiting-Playbook.pdf

Recruiting flyers can be reproduced with your custom message at the Patriots’ Path Council service center.
