What are some ways, as a new Scouting year looms, to grow your Group’s membership?

Scouter Ken is joined again by Parker, an assistant Scoutmaster in Scouts BSA. This is actually the second time that Parker and Ken have chatted during the summer, but unfortunately the first episode that they recorded will probably never air...partly because it is actually only half of an episode, and partly because it’s a bit silly to air an episode about summer program planning in mid-August.
So, instead, the topic of this episode is recruitment, and what Scout Groups can do to grow their membership. It’s an interesting opportunity to compare and contrast how a Scouts BSA group goes about recruiting new members with how Scouts Canada encourages its Groups to onboard new youth.
As always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
