Topic From the 5/8/17 Scout meeting

Greetings Families,

At the committee meeting I offered to provide a summary of the topics we discussed at the scout meetings to help provide topics of discussion for the week between the meetings. This month we are focusing on mentoring, leadership, and teamwork.

We spoke about significant mentors/coaches in our lives and why they had such an impact. This led us to a discussion on respect. On what respect sounds like, and what respect feels like. We spoke about the different ways we can communicate respect through eye contact and body language. Respect is a hard thing to articulate, even for adults, so it may be easier to talk about it abstractly.

Examples:
1. What words do you use when you are showing respect?
2. What kind of tone of voice are you using?
3. What body language do you have?

Our boys may not be able to define it, but they know what it feels like when they are being respected, and more importantly, they know what it feels like when they are being disrespected. Getting them to be aware of how they are speaking, using body language, and tone is the first step.

Thank you!
Scoutmaster Zoe

Great Online Resource

Families!

I’d like to make sure you are all aware of this website:

http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

It is a great resource that gives a good summary of all 137 merit badges, as well as worksheets to help with all the rank advancements. It is well maintained, updated, and current with all the requirements. I know several scouts have come forward with questions on what is available, and this is one of the better resources I have found.

A refresher for the merit badge process:

1. Find a merit badge you want to do! There are 137 to choose from.
2. Come speak with one of the program leaders (Myself, or Pitt, Mary, or Kim)
3. We will go over the merit badge guidelines with you, and if you are interested fill out a blue card
4. The program leader will find you a list of merit badge counsellors and provide it to the scout with the blue card
5. The scout contacts the merit badge counselor and sets up a time to work with them, and completes the requirements for the merit badge. (Don’t forget 2deep leadership is a must when working on merit badges, all merit badge counsellors are required to have current YPT training)
6. The scout returns to a program leader after the work is complete, and the counsellor has signed off
7. The program leader signs the blue card again, and then the scout provides the completed blue card to the advancement chair (currently Kathy Berg). The program leader enters the merit badge into scoutbook
8. Kathy enters the merit badge into internet advancement/approves the merit badge in scoutbook, and the merit badge shows up on the scouts advancement record
9. The merit badge is then awarded at the next Court of Honor

Yours in service,
Scoutmaster Zoe
