School access is so much more than getting permission to pass out fliers about Scouting. We invited the BSA’s Education Relationships Committee chair, Ken King, to the show to talk with us about Adopt-a-School, Report to the District, and all the other resources you have at your disposal to grow membership.
We’re now about six months into having all-girl dens in the Cub Scouting program and you’re probably wondering – hmm, how’s that working out? We were curious about that ourselves, so, we invited Jenny Hickey, the Cubmaster of Cub Scout Pack 4 in Portland, Oregon, to share her challenges and how she overcame them as well as her success stories. (A tip for listening to the successes – you might want to have a tissue handy.)
So, you might think that preparing for School Night for Scouting simply means handing out some fliers and you’ll get a big turnout. Host Aaron Derr tells us he did that his rookie year as Cubmaster and the results were less than stellar. Tune in to find out what he and guest Chris Jones did to get successful attendance results for this specific recruiting opportunity.
So, listeners, you may remember an episode from a few years ago about STEM program. Tinia Graham remembered and contacted the CubCast mailbox with some pretty specific follow-up questions. So, we invited Supernova Mentor, Teresa Colletti, back to the show to discuss Tinia’s questions on the Nova and Supernova awards and the use of counselors and mentors. (And yes, there is a difference between the two.)
