In Cub Scouts, Parents serve as Cub Master, Pack Committee Chair, Den/Patrol Leaders and Pack Committee members In Boy Scouts, Parents serve as Scout Master, Troop Committee Chair, Assistant Scout Masters, Troop Committee members, and Merit Badge Counselors Parent involvement is critical throughout to enable Scouts to stay focused on this journey. Adults/Parents should enable Scouts to perform activities well. Invest enough time and practice for Scouts to learn and perform well (e.g., flag ceremonies, scout skills) Utilize EDGE training philosophy: Educate/Explain Demonstrate Guide Empower/Enable Adults/Parents should get the appropriate training for their position (Because all Scouts deserve “Trained” Leaders) Utilize additional training opportunities like the District Round Tables and Scouter Success Seminar Seek additional roles and training opportunities to help your unit, district, and council: Range Master, Wood Badge, Powderhorn, Unit Commissioner, National Camp School, etc. Additional ideas for Parent involvement can be found at www.scoutparents.org www.scoutparents.org Page 10 Remember: It’s a journey for your Scouts. It’s also a journey for YOU.
