Interested in hearing your thoughts (and hopefully words of encouragement!) for boys who run for leadership positions but who never seem to get elected. What do you say to the Scout? How can you help them show leadership for rank advancement and personal development?
According to Scouting, the rules were developed by @RichardB’s team:
BSA national health and safety guru Richard Bourlon and his team of volunteers and professionals created these simple, clear guidelines to align the BSA with other youth-serving and service organizations.
“Habitat for Humanity gave us great feedback on their experiences” with youth-work restrictions, Bourlon tells me. He also consulted the U.S. Department of Labor.
In other words, these guidelines didn’t come out of thin air. They’re the work of hours of analysis meant to prevent injuries.
Richard, not to put you on the spot, but do you have insight into this particular rule?
