Virtual Recruiting

While we are uncertain how this fall will look concerning the reopening of schools and our recruitment efforts for inviting more youth to participate in our programs. We do know for certain, that we must continue to ask our friends to join and provide as many opportunities to communicate the message that Scouting is an outstanding value and an outstanding program for preparing our youth for their futures! Our best resources starting will be asking friends direct via email, text, WhatsApp, Zoom, and MANY strategic yard signs in your community, schools, houses of worship, and other locations with permission. 

Here’s what we’re planning on doing for this years recruitment drive.

THEME – ROCKET INTO SCOUTING!

    • Spring Recruitment events are a great opportunity for recruiting those new Lion and Tiger Cub Scouts. Invite them to attend Spring Cub Fun Day at Camp Elmore on May 1st. There will be rockets to launch as well as other activities for a fun and exciting day!
    • The “tool kit” has fillable recruitment “Ask a Friend” invitations.  Encourage your Units to start using them NOW. The “Ask A Friend” documents are designed to be fully customizable so you can be copy and paste into any social platform, emailed, or printed to hand out.
    • The Recruiting Tips is truly a must-read article. It has some very informative information and suggestions to help assist in reaching your target audience.
    • National BSA will once again provide the opportunity for us to “Geo-fence” a recruitment event at no cost, but they need a month lead time to ensure amble timing for uploading and advertising for the Unit. Start asking about a meeting place now…it is uncertain. If you lock down a meeting place, let’s get a geo-fence and MORE!
    • We will continue to have JOIN NIGHT recruitment packages available, fliers for each program, as well as generic posters. We will be prepared to recruit VIRTUALLY and IN – PERSON as permitted!
