Recruitment efforts take place throughout the year. Packs conduct a coordinated effort to enroll new members in the spring and fall. Troops, crews and ships recruit youth year-round.
Studies have shown that families/youth prefer to attend meetings close to their neighborhood. Recruiting events are put on by packs, troops and crews throughout the local community. This will help ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting.
Our main objective is to give multiple joining opportunities to ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting, and to fulfill BSA's promise to new Scouts for a great Scouting program. Adventure is calling - join Scouting! Of course, the best recruiter for any unit is an excited Scout engaged in the Scouting program who invites a friend to join Scouting. Recognize those youth who recruit Scouts with the Recruiter Strip.
