JOIN SCOUT NIGHT TRAINING

All Cub Scout Leaders! We changed our format for the Join Scout Night (JSN) Trainings offered this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our commitment to keep our volunteers and staff members as safe as possible. Dan Beard Council will host two live Virtual Join Scout Night Trainings organized by our council and district volunteers and staff. Recruitment materials pick-up (yard signs, posters, applications, Bring a Friend cards, etc.) will take place in a drive-thru format in each district between July 28-30, 2020. Join Scout Night AND Popcorn sale materials will be distributed at the same time. Please register for one of the two trainings first, and then in your email confirmation, you will receive directions on where to register for the recruitment & popcorn materials pick-up.

At the Join Scout Night Training, leaders will learn about the upcoming recruitment campaign including marketing strategies and materials in place to help reach our target audience of youth and parents. Please make sure your Pack is represented at one of the virtual Join Scout Night Trainings which will be held on Zoom. We encourage more than one representative from each Pack attend the virtual Join Scout Night training(s) to receive the greatest benefit.

ABOUT JOIN SCOUT NIGHT

School will be starting throughout Dan Beard Council over the next few weeks. As students head back to school, it also means it’s time to invite new families to participate in the Scouting program. We recognize that schools will be delivered differently this year, so peer to peer recruitment and individual invitations to join Scouting will be more important than ever.

Hopefully your Pack will be represented at one of our Join Scout Night (JSN) Training sessions that will take place over the next couple of weeks.

If you have not already done so, get your Pack info/handouts ready to go (Pack contacts/calendar/basic info). You will need these items at signup and perhaps at a variety of other events during the next month where your Pack will be represented. All Cub Scout families will receive a Parent Power Packet mailing with details about how every family can contribute to recruitment efforts including the #ScoutSHARE social media campaign and contest over the next several weeks.

Pack Responsibilities:

  • Work with your district executive staff to plan and coordinate Join Scout Night sign-up events (date/time/location/contact) in the next few days.
  • Look up your Pack/Troop/Crew on www.BeAScout.org. Update any info as appropriate now before the wave of inquiries hit email inbox for your group.
  • Make sure your Pack participates in back-to-school events and open houses.
  • Schedule and prepare for your Parent Orientation to be held a week or so after your Join Scout Night.
  • Get the word out in your community about the Join Scout Night. The earlier the better!
    • Yard signs, posters, community newspaper, church bulletin, community/school/church marquees, etc.
  • Activate and setup online registration (optional)
