Do you know a successful Pack or Troop? They are the ones that have a gigantic AOL cross-over ceremony. You know the one Troop who has 2 or 3 new Eagle Scouts every year. It’s no secret. Every unit can do it, and it’s as simple as reading a map. You don’t need a unit leader with 6 rows of square knots either. J. T. E. (Journey to Excellence)!
The road map for all Scout units success is the Journey to Excellence:
Planning – Scheduling events that will fill a calendar for a year or more. See the link below for the Planning Seminar video.
Budget – Scouting will cost money and budget & fundraising are part of it.
Membership – Recruiting is year-round. Not just youth. Retention is the program. See the link below for the Recruiting Scouts video.
Program – Camping, short, and long-term. Advancement & Training. Service projects.
Volunteer Leadership – Communicates with parents leaders & scouts. Training for ALL! See the link below for the Training For All video.
⚜️ Note: All units who work the Journey to Excellence into everything they do, succeed. “If you do Journey to Excellence then you’re doing Scouting wright.”
