Rank Advancement

Posted on May 18 2019 - 12:13am

Requirements: When completing rank or merit badge requirements, scouts are expected to meet the requirements as they are stated – no more and no less.  You must do exactly what is stated in the requirements.  If it says “show or demonstrate”, that is what you must do.  Just telling about it isn’t enough.  The same thing holds true for such words as “make,” “list,” “in the field,” and “collect,” identify,” and “label.” (Source: 2019 Scouts BSA Requirements Handbook)

Rank Advancement

Something About Rank Advancement

Scout Requirement #6 - Personal Protection

Parents should work with their scout on this requirement.

Once complete scouts should ask their SM or an ASM to sign it off in their scout book.

Requirement #6 has two parts.

6a: Parents should read the pamphlet at the beginning of the scout book titled "How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parents Guide", then help their scout to complete the exercises.

6b: Scouts earn the Cyber-Chip Award for their grade.  Parents should review the overview link below, then encourage their scout to work through the grade appropriate Cyber-Chip requirements.

Merit Badge Counselor Training

Posted on Apr 27 2019 - 11:50am

Calling All Parents & Other Interested Adults

We Need You: SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE WITH SCOUTS

The merit badge counselor is a key player in the Scouts BSA advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a merit badge counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young Scout’s curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a merit badge counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.

If you are not yet a merit badge counselor, it is easy to become a volunteer.

To qualify as a merit badge counselor, a volunteer must:

  • Register annually with the Boy Scouts of America.
  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Be of good character.
  • Be proficient in the merit badge subject by vocation, avocation, or special training.
  • Be able to work with Scout-age youth.
  • Be approved by the district/council advancement committee.

 To get started, get trained, check out the full list of merit badges, pick a few that you’re comfortable helping scouts to complete, then fill out the two forms below, print, and sign them, bring them to the next troop meeting.

Merit Badge Counselor Training: Saturday May 4 (1pm – 3pm) in Colleyville – No Cost – Register Here: https://scoutingevent.com/662-RR27_mbc_trng2#
