  1. Apologies if this is not in the correct forum, but I'm sure many volunteers help out at the district and unit level...is it an issue if I were to be a leader in a troop in one district, but volunteer at the district level in another district? Or does it not matter that much and I'm overthinking things? I'm in the process of attending meetings and getting to know the leaders in a troop, but just starting the application process (their chartered org requires a separate background check for volunteers in addition to the one that would be done by BSA). How would fees work if I were approved by
  2. Thanks again for all the help and information...I've completed all of the paperwork and printed out a copy of my YPT certificate, will take it to my next troop meeting and will also make a few copies just in case. As I said before I'm looking forward to being apart of my troop and the organization for many years to come and am looking forward to being officially registered so I can start wearing the uniform
  3. Thanks for all the input everyone, I'm printing the application and will be handing it in at the next troop meeting...unless it would be better to take it to the council office? Either way, looking forward to being apart of the organization for many years to come!
  4. Thanks for the information! I found the application form online, I'm assuming it's valid if I printed and filled it out then handed it to the appropriate people?
  5. Thanks for the prompt response to my question. I intend to be a registered volunteer and am waiting to submit another application (previous one was closed and never apparently looked at by appropriate people). I have held off on wearing the uniform as I did know that only registered members should wear it
  6. I apologize if this is a silly question, but if I'm volunteering in a local troop and am still new to it. I'm of the impression the scoutmaster, assistant scoutmaster, committee members, etc. for sure should have a uniform for sure to identify themselves, but what about volunteers such as myself that are new and don't have any specific position? I bought a uniform, but I also wanted to make sure I'm on the up and up about any protocols. Again, apologies if this is a dumb question, but it's been a while since I've been involved with the Scouts.
  7. Thanks again for the warm welcome...the troop I volunteered in had its first in person meeting last night so I was able to meet everyone involved with the troop who were all very welcoming. I'm looking forward to being more involved going forward and am hoping this current drop in cases continues to go down as more people get vaccinated; I could tell the scouts were excited to be back to in person meetings and I think for kids especially, it's important to have that interaction in person.
  8. Thank you for the warm welcome...I don't have kids in the program, volunteered in the desire to make my community a better place and give back. I definitely look forward to when live events and meetings can happen again and in the meantime I'll be pretty active on this forum!
  9. Thanks, glad to be here and looking forward to making new memories in this organization
  10. I bought the new uniform shirt and while I'm not the biggest fan of the hidden buttons, the shirt itself is very comfortable and the vents in the back would come in handy on a hot day (I tend to sweat easily)
  11. Hi everyone, just joined this forum. I was involved with Cub Scouts way back in the day and with Boy Scouts as well, haven't been involved since 2000 but recently decided I wanted to get involved again as a volunteer. I signed up with a local troop in December and am currently waiting for my application to be approved and am looking forward to helping out with said troop and giving back to a program that I had a lot of fun with back in the day. I realize now is a weird time to sign up what with the pandemic, but I'm looking forward to being active once things clear up and start getting back
