Now, when a friend of your son or daughter—or even a fellow adult—asks, “How can I get involved in Scouting?” your answer just got easier: BeAScout.org.
While the recruitment Web site isn’t new, the BSA has simplified its searchability, making it a breeze for new Scouts or Venturers to get plugged into their local Scouting community. All that’s needed is a ZIP code and a few clicks of a mouse.
The search bar isn’t the only new addition. A series of “Matrix”-like videos showcase what it means to be a Scout or Venturer. (Hint: lots of high-adventure fun.) If you haven’t seen the videos, check them out here.
The next time someone asks you about Scouting, you can be sure this easy-to-remember answer will make a lasting impression.
