The Adventure Plan

_DSC1832.jpgThe Boy Scouts of America is pleased to announce a new resource on Scouting.org called The Adventure Plan (TAP) https://tap.scouting.org/. This is an invaluable planning tool for unit leaders, particularly new unit leaders, as they learn the steps to planning safe and exciting outings away from their weekly meeting place.  Besides the basics of planning an outing, it is the gateway to the complete Historic Trails list and most council owned High Adventure bases and programs.

Find more Scouting Adventures at the Outdoor Programs and Properties Website!

The Outdoor Programs and Properties webpage is the best resource for many of Scouting’s premier programs including camping, shooting sports, aquatics, NCAP (National Camp Accreditation Program), Outdoor Ethics, COPE & Climbing and many others You can also find the latest edition of the Trail to Adventure newsletter posted each quarter.

United Way of Greater Greensboro ends 95-year partnership with Old North State Council resulting in the loss of $75,849 for local Scouting

Effective June 30, 2019 United Way of Greater Greensboro will end a 95-year partnership with the Old North State Council, Boy Scouts of America. United Way of Greater Greensboro senior staff members informed Council leadership that Scouting would no longer be a strategic partner and therefore would receive no funding. This is a loss of $75,849 annually, impacting youth in our community most in need of life-changing Scouting programs.

Our funding request to United Way of Greater Greensboro in 2019 (and for many prior years) was 100% focused on delivering Scouting programs that teach life skills and future job skills (through merit badges) plus increase self-confidence for youth in impoverished and at-risk communities. There is no appeal process nor any bridge funding provided by United Way of Greater Greensboro to aid the Council in its transition. Their decision is final.

This funding loss from United Way of Greater Greensboro could not come at a more critical time as we prepare for the start of summer camp on June 16. Camp scholarships, program supplies, and equipment for youth in need have already been confirmed and the costs will be charged to the Council in the weeks ahead. Our United Way of Greater Greensboro monthly distributions in July and August would have helped cover these needs.

Moving into fall 2019, 2020, and beyond, our Council could have significantly less resources to provide camp scholarships, BSA registration/events fee assistance, program equipment, uniforms, and handbooks for youth in need. It could mean that more than 500+ youth in the greatest need of Scouting will no longer be reached. Together, we can change that.

Donate to Scouting Today! Thank you for your kind consideration.

It is important to note this funding loss is 100% associated with the United Way of Greater Greensboro. We still enjoy a mutually beneficial partnership and financial support from United Way of Greater High Point and United Way of Randolph County.

Internet Advancement Updates

Unit Key 3 are aware that tracking a Scout’s advancements is one of the key components to administering a successful unit.  There are currently two methods for doing that: via either Internet Advancement or Scout Book.  Unit Key 3 users, unit Key 3 Delegate Users and Unit Advancement Chairs can access Internet Advancement through My.Scouting, Legacy Tools Menu.

Recent upgrades to Internet Advancement have been implemented.

The improvements make inputting advancement updates faster, allow leaders to search advancement history in a snap and give Scouters more control over printable reports — like the kind used to make purchases at the Scout Shop.  These improvement make Internet Advancement functional on all devices: desktop, tablet or smartphone.

Does helping fellow Scouts count for service requirements?

When someone needs help, Scouts are there to jump in and serve. That’s what Scouts do, even when it’s their fellow Scouts who are in need.

Service plays an integral part in rank advancement, so when Scouts help each other out, the question sometimes comes up: Can helping another Scouting unit count for service hours for advancement?

Guilford County Senior Spotlight: “The Eagle Scout Who Could”

Ben Foley wasn’t expected to make eye contact. Or make any friends. Or even say “I love you” to his mom or dad.  Ben’s parents, Robert and Sarah Foley, heard that from the experts when Ben was no more than 3. They were told Ben would never talk because he was autistic.  But that didn’t happen.

When asked, “How did you overcome it all?” “It was mostly through Boy Scouts,” he says. “Not a lot of people go through Boy Scouts from Tiger to Eagle, and my brothers, they helped me.”

On the life statement he composed for becoming an Eagle Scout, Ben wrote: “Scouting has helped me learn how to be a leader, despite having autism. I am thankful for leaders along the way that have had the patience to work with me and help me overcome my challenges.

“I expect to use what I have learned from scouting throughout the rest of my life.”

Inaugural Class of Female Eagle Scouts

Scouts-BSA-girl-climbingOn February 1, 2019, the Boy Scouts of America began welcoming girls into Scouts BSA. This followed on the heels of nearly 78,000 young girls joining Cub Scouting last year, and we’re off to an amazing start with over 15,000 young women in nearly 2,050 Scouts BSA troops as of April 24, 2019.

One of the characteristics of Scouting—for over one hundred years—is that no matter when you join, or the rank you attain, the Scouting experience prepares you for life. And for some, the pinnacle of their Scouting experience is achieving the highest rank of Eagle Scout.

These are historic times for our Movement – we want these young women to enjoy the journey and share the joy with other young women across the country of being part of the inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts. Because we want them to enjoy the journey and all the benefits of such an experience, all girls who join the BSA in 2019 should have an opportunity to earn their Eagle rank, should they diligently and promptly complete all requirements. We also understand that some young women who join in 2019 may not have enough time to complete the journey to Eagle due to their age. Accordingly, after carefully considering recommendations from stakeholders, including feedback from volunteers and professionals, the National Executive Committee of the Boy Scouts of America has approved the following temporary transition rules regarding extensions for youth over 16 but not yet 18 years of age on February 1, 2019 to complete the requirements for the Eagle Scout rank.
