Troop Elections this Month

Troop Elections this Month

The elections for troop leaders is this coming Monday, August 28. Ranks Star and above require a position of leadership in order to advance. Scouts from Scout to First Class also have an opportunity to serve in leadership roles. Troop 380's philosophy has always been the earlier you serve as a leader, the faster you learn and grow as a Scout.

How do you become a troop leader?

1) Read the Troop Positions document. This outlines the responsibilities of each leadership role. Be sure to also read the Leadership Objectives for each role.

2) Select three roles in which you would like to serve.

3) Complete a Leadership Application and your personal Troop Leadership Position Objectives. When complete send them to the Scoutmaster.

4) Attend the meeting on Monday, August 28.

It is that easy. The whole process takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Remember, this is your chance to get a leadership role so be sure to run for an office!

Bullying Awareness Resources

Posted on Jun 7 2017 - 10:14am

How To Stop Bullying

The BSA has put out several great resources to help Scouts, parents and leaders deal with the issue of bullying. While Boy Scouts tends to not have this issue as pervasive as schools, as we approach summer time (and summer camp), it is always good to prepare our Scouts to recognize and report anything they might see that resembles bullying.

We hope that Scouts and parents alike will find these resources helpful.
