Enthusiastic Parents Needed!

Posted on

Troop 96 is proud to be a thoroughly scout-run organization.  As much as possible, we leave it to our boys to make the decisions and set the tone for their own experience.  But this autonomy is only possible because of our parents and adult leaders, working quietly behind the scenes.  By giving our scouts the responsibility to make their own decisions, we build young men with character and confidence.

Of course, there are many things young men can’t do for themselves, no matter how confident they are!  So we are there, to drive the cars, make arrangements and provide guidance, training and support in many different ways.

So we are looking for a few good men and women- moms and dads, to join our support team!

The boys’ needs are simple.  They need rides to and from events and campouts.  They need someone (with a capable truck or SUV) to haul the trailer to campsites.  They need organization to get permissions, buy supplies, sort out logistics- all in support of their plans and decisions.  They also need trainers and teachers.  Adults who can lead merit badge classes and arrange visits by knowledgeable resources who can come in and lead/teach merit badge material.

And that might be YOU!

So if you have a special talent, skill, large vehicle… the BOYS need you!

Come on in to a Troop meeting next Monday and volunteer.  We can use whatever you have to bring to the team!
