Willing to Help

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I sat with a young Scout and conducted a Scoutmaster conference with him. It was for his First Class rank and he was incredibly excited about it. After asking him open-ended questions about his experiences and his life, I asked him what the best thing was in our Troop. His response was excellent and heart-warming: "Everyone is always willing to help you no matter what."

 

With all the discussion we've been having lately concerning "servant leadership" I couldn't help but think of this new First Class Scout. He really nails what we're trying to do in Scouting.

Aha! but is HE always willing to help others no matter what? :) Once you get to that point, you have a great scout! Sounds like the troop is well on it's way.

He's getting there, Stosh.

 

At the close of this week's meeting I used my SM minute about helping others advance:

 

"Next time when you think about what YOU need to do to advance, maybe you ought to think how can I help my Patrol mates advance."
