I am often asked …
“How do I get my troop’s adult volunteers to use the patrol method?”
I’ll answer that question with a one sentence Scouter job description. Over the past decade of writing the blog at Scoutmastercg.com I’ve been looking for a one sentence definition of Scouting. Something we can tell ourselves that focuses us on what’s important about our work as Scouters.
I think I may have found it, listen in and see if you agree.
I’ll also answer questions about merit bade sashes, getting Scouts to wear the uniform correctly, and commiserate with a new Scoutmaster who is feeling that it all may be too much.
