Here’s an easy way to introduce visiting parents or new adult volunteers to the concept of youth leadership – a Scout leader business card that explains things simply, politely yet directly.
THANK YOU FOR LENDING A HAND
Our Scouts are on the field playing a game.
Head Coach = Scoutmaster
Team Captains = Youth Leadership
Team Members = Scouts
- Head coach manages communication with team captains.
- No coaches or spectators allowed on the field of play.
- Please do not directly instruct, advise or otherwise interfere with Scouts without first talking to the Scoutmaster.
- Adults may stop unsafe or inappropriate activity immediately.
When your son is participating in Scouts he is under the direction of youth leaders – not his parent. If he comes to you with a question or concern please tell him to ask his patrol leader or youth leader in charge. If he can’t get an answer speak to the Scoutmaster.
