There are many ways to recruit youth and adults into the Scouting program. In your role as Unit Leader there are four key events that are essential to your success.

  • A unit Open House, which is by far the best way to recruit new youth members and adult volunteers into your unit.
    A promotional booth at a parent-teacher night or other event where you can encourage families to attend your Open House.
  • A “Youth Talk” at the local school, church or youth center where you get face to face with kids to explain the program and let them know why they should join and attend your Open House.
  • A Bring-A-Buddy event where your current members deliver invitations to non-members inviting them to one of your unit events.
