New Leaders – Understanding Scout Facing or Backstage

Cub Scout Packs recruit leaders from the parents. Troops get leaders crossing over from Packs with their Scouts. Packs are organized and run by the adult leaders. Troops are “Youth Lead” and the adult leadership is there to give guidance and structure. In scouting, we have two sides of adult leadership. Cub Masters, Den Leaders, and Scoutmasters are “Scout Facing” Leaders. The larger and as important leadership is going on backstage. Committee members and charter organization representatives (COR’s) for Pakes and Troops are a critical role for adults. There is a place for everyone, no matter their commitment level.

Scout Service to Your Charter Organization?

Charter Organization Representative (COR’s) is your units connection to the community. Many units don’t even consider a service project for their own. If you’re with a faith organization, think about all of the holidays when they need service. Schools need flag presentations at the PTA meeting. Other community service organizations have many needs. Units will have problems if they’re invisible to there organization that charters them. Talk with your COR and get thinking about all the service opportunities.
