Opportunities exist as merit badge counselors, committee functions, fund-raising etc. In my area, there are always positions to be filled at the District level. There are opportunities to help at council long-term camping facilities throughout the year as well. Stay active and registered in your local unit. I have transferred to a different Scout unit on occasion where adult leadership has become a bit thin. I doing so I stay current with former adult
  3. I was never asked this at my EBoR 50+ years ago. In Cubs, it was common to see the blue uniform at school and I joined in on those days designated by my council. Today boys are probably more comfortable wearing the uniform in public when they are participating in a unit activity as a group. Together, this provides a positive example of the uniform and involvement of Scouting in the community. 12PointLife
