How to Use Social Media to Spread the Word About Scouting
As the school year begins, it’s time to encourage everyone to use social media to spread the word about Scouting.
You can start sharing right now with a few simple items like hashtags or ready-to-post social content.
Be sure to visit the BSA Brand Center and use the official logos, social media images, videos, and other assets like the ones available for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, Exploring, and Sea Scouts. Also direct people to Scouting.org or BeAScout.org so they can learn more or join!
As a reminder, focus your social posts on the value of the programs of the Boy Scouts of America, and never criticize other youth activities/organizations or those who may not share your perspective.
Incorporate one or more of the hashtags below in short social posts about your unit’s open house, a positive personal Scouting experience, or why this opportunity is meaningful to your family.
