Current Troop Adult Volunteer Needs

Posted on May 23 2020 - 11:23pm

We have a few needs for adult volunteers - the foundation of this troop is stronger when we have more adults connected and helping keep things going behind the scenes. Even if you can not commit to a big job, many hands make the work lighter for all!

1. Scoutmaster for the troop - beginning in January 2021.  This leader will pick up where Lester Cox leaves off as the head of the scout troop, guiding the Patrol Leaders Council as they plan and lead troop meetings, and keeping the boys going in the right direction. We hope to identify this person now, so they can begin to shadow Lester this fall.  Important to note that we also have some Assistant Scoutmasters who are available to support the Scoutmaster, as needed - you do not need to be a lone wolf in this role!

2. Trail to First Class Leader - to lead weekly Trail to First Class (TFC) sessions before troop meetings as a help to younger scouts working through the early ranks. Older scouts are also assigned to assist the TFC Leader as they practice their own leadership skills. 

3. Flower Sale & Camp Card Fundraising: We are looking for a new adult leader to organize the flower fundraiser that is held in the fall and spring. This involved coordinating with the store owner, editing the sale flyer, communicating the details to the troop, collecting orders to submit to the store owner, and coordinating the distribution of the orders to scouts when the flowers come in.  

    We also need a point person for the Camp Card fundraiser held in late spring - this can be done separately from flower sales or as a part of the same role.  A simpler job, this fundraising task involves handing out the cards to scouts to sell and communicating the details to the troop. Money & unsold cards then need to be collected and returned to the council.

4. Hospitality: this adult serves the troop by organizing the receptions held after our three annual Courts of Honor ceremonies (September, January and May - usually). The work involved is to create and share a sign-up genius list to recruit other adult help for set up, bringing food and drinks, and cleaning up for these receptions.  Its a delegating and organizing job.

5. Medical Form Coordinator: A perfect job for someone who is organized!!  The med form coordinator ensures that these medical releases are all up to date and accompany the adult leaders for each camp out, camp and trip. The job can be done through email to connect with those who need to submit current forms.

If you are interested or have questions about any of these volunteer needs, please contact Kyle Donovan at [email protected]

Since we've been operating remotely for a couple of months, the troop leadership must rely on the online Scoutbook records to determine advancement and eligibility for awards.  Please check your Scoutbook account and make sure all your information is up to date.  Did you record your service hours? Your camping nights? All those merit badges you've been working on since Spring Break? Log into Scoutbook and make sure we have your info.  Thanks!
