Voice of the Scout

How are we doing?  What can we improve upon?

These are questions that Scouting is attempting to answer with its new “Voice of the Scout” initiative.  In the Spring and the Fall, volunteers throughout Scouting will receive email questionnaires from national Scouting about the Scouting program.

As a unit, you should make sure that all of your parents, volunteers and Scouts over the age of 14 have their email address listed in ScoutNet.  You can ensure that this is done by giving a list to our District Executive, or by filling out this handy-dandy form on our website!  Doing so is now one of the criteria we must pass in order to receive unit, District or Council Journey to Excellence recognition.  If your email address is not listed, please get it to us as soon as possible.

As a Scouter, Scoutparent or older Scout, if you receive a questionnaire, please take a few minutes to fill it out.
