Support Visit Log September 2014
Each Scouter receives the personal face-to- face support required for him/her to thrive and deliver consistently high quality programs. In-Person Support Goal In-Person Support Outcome: Every section and group receives three support visits annually
This tool will assist with our Volunteer Support Strategy by logging support visits to Groups/Sections and to monitor tasks. Keeping your Support Visits logged in one location will be a great Support Team collaboration & strategic planning tool. Support Visit Log = SVL What is the Support Visit Log?
If In-Person Support is a goal, then we need to measure how we are doing. We can identify “holes” in support. Which groups are not receiving support visits? When was the last time that a group received a visit? This log helps us work as a team, to easily communicate issues and concerns observed by support scouters. Why Log Support Visits?
