RECRUITMENT/GROWTH TACTICS

Posted on Oct 26 2022 - 5:29pm

To many staff and volunteers, the following tactics are second-nature. To some, however, they may be new. If you haven’t yet used these tactics, give them a try. They are time-tested and proven!

Membership Inventories

Unit leaders and Unit Commissioners working in collaboration with local units to guarantee all youth who are participating, that applications have been processed. Conduct inventories twice a year in October and April.

School Talks

The school talk recruiting presentation is a three to five minute talk to potential members who are interested in joining the Scouting program usually held during the day. In addition, to school presentations, can be given at community centers, churches, and directly to other youth organizations.

Fall/Spring Recruiting

To enroll prospective Lions, Tigers, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and their families into existing packs and troops, and to enlist parent participation in the program.

BeAScout

BeAScout.org provides a 24/7 resource for interested parents to find local Scouting programs and apply online.

Peer to Peer Recruitment

Consider having a recruitment campaign within the pack and troop. Offer incentives to each Scout who brings in a friend, as well as an overall prize for the top recruiter.

Webelos to Scout Transition

Boys joining troops from Webelos dens continue to be the best resource for growing the troop and expanding patrols. Many thriving troops have a close working relationship with a Cub Scout pack that provides them with a new group of enthusiastic youth every year.

Roster Checks (Any event that occurs at the council)

Check rosters for all youth registrants at all district and council events and activities to ensure that every Scout participating is registered.

Career Interest Survey

Provides contact information of students who could be invited to join a Post, a club, or even a crew. Demonstrates to prospective participating organizations just how many high school students could join their program. Builds relationships with participating schools.
