BSA National Has Lots of Resources

BSA National Has Lots of Resources

A recent posting in Scouting Magazine was a reminder that BSA National has lots of resources that Scout and Cub adult leaders can draw on. There's useful information both for new and for veteran leaders.

As an example, Scout and Cub rank requirements change, sometimes as tweaks, but sometimes as complete rewrites. Clearly, you have to stay abreast of such changes. The magazine article recommended two sites:

The first is the Program Resources page. Think of it as your quick-start guide to Scouts BSA. Here, you’ll find a collection of links for starting a Scouts BSA troop, helping Scouts earn merit badges, guiding youth leaders toward more effective troop meetings and more.

The second is the Program Updates page. This one’s for both newcomers and veterans, and it’s where the National Scouts BSA Committee posts the latest information on any changes to the program. If there’s a new program initiative, updated requirement or any change to Scouts BSA printed material, you’ll find it there first.
