Recruitment Ideas

If there are any recruitment-based questions on how to go forward with one, please contact District Executive Gareth Evans at gareth.evans@scouting.org. With any of these ideas, please keep the S.A.F.E. Return to Scouting checklist in mind. Here are some things to always keep in mind when recruiting…

Great ways to promote your unit and increase membership

  • Power of 3! (each scout recruiting 3 new scouts into the program)*
  • Popsicles in the Park
  • Personal Invitations (personally contacting and inviting families to join your unit)*
  • Being in constant contact with the school district, and asking if flyers can be sent home with students
  • Checking “Be a Scout Leads” after accepting online applications
  • Recruiting using social media (community FB pages)
  • Creating Flyers to promote the units recruitment events (DE Will Gales can assist with creating flyers)
  • Appearance and recruitment at Community Festivals
