Scouts BSA Recruitment Toolbox
Why We Recruit
Scouting provides life changing opportunities for youth, families, and our communities at large. Welcoming new families is vital to ensure these traits continue on in our Neighborhoods. A recruitment event provides an opportunity to speak to the families of the new Scouts. We recruit so that more youth can grow from Scouting and so more adults have an opportunity to volunteer so we can maintain a local community legacy. The tools below are a variety of resources available to assist with planning your recruitment efforts.
