Recruitment is an important part of Scouting. Bringing new youth into the Scouting program keeps the unit viable and healthy. New youth bring energy, and enthusiasm to your unit. Having a year-round growth plan will help attract new Scouts. Units are encouraged to identify volunteers to be New Member Coordinators to engage new Scouts and their families. For more information and a recruitment playbook, visit the Unit recruiting Hub -

To encourage recruitment this fall, the Council is offering two programs. 

Just One

Recruit a friend to join Scouting!
  Beginning Monday, September 14, 2020, when a Scout recruiters a friend to join Scouting, that Scout's name and the name of the new Scout that was recruited will be entered into one of two drawings for prizes.  To enter, Scouts must complete the entry form and attach it to the membership application of the new Scout. For online applications, the entry form must indicate the application was submitted online. 

Drawings will take place on Facebook Live: every other Monday evening.
