T453 New Scout Patrols

In order to provide special attention and training to our new scouts and parents, Troop 453 designated a special patrol as the New Scout Patrol. If there are more than 6 new scouts, the New Scout Patrol is divided into 2 groups with the same program and same Patrol Meetings.

Troop Guides and ASM are assigned to the New Scout Patrol(s). Patrol Leader and other youth leader positions are rotated every 2 months to ensure new scouts have more chances to be trained for different youth leader positions.

Each new scout is assigned to a New Scout Patrol once he joins the troop. A new scout is required to stay with his New Scout Patrol for 6 months. After the 1st 6 months, the new scout may move to a regular patrol or stay with his new scout patrol.


The Patrol Leaders' Council (PLC)

The patrol leaders' council, not the adult leaders, is responsible for planning and conducting the troop's activities. The patrol leaders' council is composed of the following voting members: senior patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leaders, troop guide, Venture crew chief.

The troop's activities are selected and planned at the annual program planning conference. The troop's yearly plan is then submitted to the troop committee for approval. The troop committee either approves the plan or makes alternative suggestions for the patrol leaders' council to consider. At its monthly meetings, the patrol leaders' council organizes and assigns activity responsibilities for the weekly troop meetings. The troop committee interacts with the patrol leaders' council through the Scoutmaster.

The Troop's Youth Leaders

The troop is actually run by its boy leaders. With the guidance of the Scoutmaster and his assistants, they plan the program, conduct troop meetings, and provide leadership among their peers.
