RememberSchiff posted a topic in Unit FundraisingIMHO, somewhere in the first lesson of adult leader training there should be a rule. Thieves steal from scouts anytime, anyplace. It's so easy. Be vigilant, protect your scouts, protect your assets. This story from Portland, OR is another example but with a local contractor coming to the rescue, a fundraiser - "This is how our troop pays for the entire program throughout the year. Our boys don't pay for summer camp they have to earn their way to summer camp", Troop 351 Scoutmaster Mike Benson the Governor stops by, the community responds and sales pick up and perhaps a girl Boy Scout interviewed. She was working the fundraiser and appeared to be wearing scout pants. http://www.kgw.com/life/holidays/samaritan-steps-in-after-grinch-steals-from-portland-boy-scouts/498150606
qwazse posted a topic in Advancement ResourcesI'm spinning off of the other discussion about making the new Cyberchip requirements work for crossovers. The question is what can a scout learn via the existing curriculum that gets him somewhat prepared to help someone in need? And, what does a boy need to master to be prepared to help someone? I'm asking because I'm not involved in guiding scouts through the Cyberchip program, but I have scouts who are the "leaders" in their families in internet privacy/security issues. (That's good and bad.) Is this the 21st century equivalent of the old "how to help in case of a runaway horse" requirement in First Class first aid?
