Let’s move Scouting forward. The Marketing and Membership Hub is a resource to help you serve more youth in your area. From recruiting ideas to social media best practices, the Hub provides a one-stop resource to discover, activate, and improve your marketing and recruiting strategy.

Unit New Member Coordinator

Sustaining strong membership in a unit depends not only on having new members join the unit, but also on engaging youth and their families in the unit experiences so that they feel welcomed and want to stay. The role of the New Member Coordinator is to ensure that both keys to success take place.

Is your BeAScout.org Pin Up-to-Date?

BeAScout.org is THE tool for families to find your Scouting unit and register online, so it’s critical to make sure your unit’s BeAScout pin is accurate.

Make sure your unit is on the map, and your unit contacts are up-to-date.

Online Registration Guide

The online registration system is designed to make it easy for families to join Scouting. They can find a unit, if they do not already have one in mind, or apply to the unit of their choice.

The system walks them through the entire application and payment process. If there is an application or lead to be processed, the unit Key 3 will receive a notification in their My.Scouting inbox once a day letting them know they have actions to take.
