Recruiting

Studies show boys don't join Boy Scout because there were never asked. They also don't know how, where, or when to join. Boys who do become Scuts did so because someone , usually a friend, invited them.

Scouts can be the best recruiters for the BSA, and Troop leaders should encourage their efforts. 2 tools are for our boy-to-boy recruiting.


Scout Recruiter Patch
  • The Scout Recruiter Patch is a program provided by the national office. Any scout who recruits a friend into the program from Sept 1 to Dec. 31, 2003 wil earn the patch. "Additional free patches are available through our local council.
  • The Souting for Fun Troop Adventure Viewer CD is a new tool Scouts cn use to get their non-scouting friends interested in the program. He can use it to create his own activity slide show and email it to his friends. We can copy this CD and distribute it to our scouts and their friends.

Subsidize Adult Leader Policy

Definitions

Assumptions

(P1) Proposal for subsidizing adult leaders attending major event

M1. For scout master position, troop will subsidize 50% of his/her expense, upto $300.

M2. For other adult leaders, troop will subsidize 50% of his/her expense, upto $100.

M3. Troop will only subsize the expense of required number of adult leaders.

M4. The remaining expense for the required adults are to be shared by the attending boys.

M5. If troop has abundant budget and would like to subsidize more for the attending adults, this can be discussed case by case.

To determine which non-SM adult leader(s) to be subsidized, the proposed algorithm is as following: An example: if a major event costs about $310 per person and 22 boys went. 3 adults are required.

Troop will pay $355(=$155+$100*2).
Each boys will pay $336.14(=$310+$26.14(=((($310*3)-$355)/22))).

(P2-1) Proposal for subsidizing adult leaders attending expensive major event


P2-1-1. Same as M1.

P2-1-2. Same as M2.

P2-1-3. Same as M3.

P2-1-4. The remaining expense for the required adults are to be shared by the attending boys.

P2-1-5. Same as M5.

(P2-2) Proposal for subsidizing adult leaders attending expensive major event

P2-2-1. Same as M1.

P2-2-2. Same as M2.

P2-2-3. Same as M3.

P2-2-4. The remaining expense for the required adults are to be shared by the attending boys, but there is a maximum for such load on a boy. The load to be distributed on each boy will be no more than 10% of remaining amount after troop subsidization. The rest of adult expense are to be paid by the attending adults.

P2-2-5. Same as M5.

An example, for an expensive major event, the cost for each person is $1000.
If 8 boys are going. 2 adults are needed. Troop will subsidize $400, and $1600 is to be shared by the 8 boys.

Under P2-1 proposal, each boy need to pay extra $200(=$1600/8). That makes each boy pay for $1200 and each attending adults pay $0.

Under P2-2 proposal, each boy needs to pay extra $160(=$1600*10%). That makes each boy pay for $1160.

And the SM needs to pay $60(=$1000-$300-($160*8))/2)).

2nd adult to pay $260(=$1000-$100-($160*8/2)).
