Have you checked out beascout.org lately? Well stop what you’re doing and head over there now, because this site has undergone a facelift to help in your council’s recruitment strategy.
The site received several major updates, helping in the process of signing up for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing. It also has helpful information about each program so councils and districts can share what’s in store for new Scouting families. What’s more, potential Scouting families can access the revamped site in the same way they have in the past on the homepage of scouting.org by clicking ‘Join Scouting Today’ or directly at beascout.org.
Scouting is made easier for interested families. Discover the four reasons why below.
- Get started fast. For the quickest route to joining a Scouting program, recruits can click ‘Get Started’ in the upper right hand corner of the BeAScout homepage.
- Learn which program is right for you. Families can click ‘Why Scouting’ and choose a program on the homepage toolbar to learn more about what Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing has to offer.
- Find a program near you. By entering a zip code in the unit locator, potential Scouting families can pinpoint the closest Cub Scout, Boy Scout, or Venturing unit in their area.
- Give back to the youth in your community. Parents and adults interested in Scouting can take joining a step further by clicking ‘Become a Volunteer.’
And this is just the beginning, with a process to continually optimize the site for ease of use and effectiveness. So keep an eye out for upcoming releases introducing new site features.
Now that you’ve read about the website updates, check them out at beascout.org. Share this page with your council and put the site to good use by introducing your friends and family to Scouting!
