PL for the New Scout Patrol

Recommended Posts

If I've read correctly, some of your batch system NSPs last a year! Why?

Most all our newbies stay in the NSP for only about a month or two. It generally takes them that long to get signed off on all T'foot requirements. They then get to join a "real" patrol; this, in itself, is a great motivator.

Our patrols are generally mixed-age as most choose the patrol nearest their own home.

Allowing a new Scout to be a PL is ludicrous. While there may be that rare exception, most newbies have little Scoutcraft, don't know that much about Scouting, and without leadership training have nothing to fall back on. All they do is waste time when they should be working on their own advancement
