Why You Should Take the Scouting Alumni and Friends Online Training

The National Scouting Alumni and Friends committee has launched a new online training for Scout executives, council Scouting Alumni and Friends committee chairs, committee members, and anyone interested in learning more about Scouting Alumni and Friends.

Working with Scouting U, the Scouting Alumni and Friends Training Committee developed training to meet the needs of the local council, area, and region. This training is now available in the BSA Learn Center in the Expanded Learning section.

The following courses will be offered: 

  • Scouting Alumni — Creating the Committee
    An introductory course that describes the process used to establish an active Scouting Alumni and Friends committee as well as review the size and structure of the committee. In other words, what are we getting into? 
  • Scouting Alumni — The Committee Chair’s Role
    A course to help the Scouting Alumni and Friends committee chair understand the responsibilities as the lead of the Scouting Alumni and Friends committee and the role of the Scouting Alumni and Friends committee within the council. It is an overview of how the committee should function.
  • Scouting Alumni — The Scout Executive’s Role
    An overview of the added value of starting a Scouting Alumni and Friends Committee within the council. It answers the question, why should I start a Scouting Alumni and Friends Committee in my council? What’s in it for me or my council? 
  • Scouting Alumni — Affiliate Relationships
    An overview of the affiliate relationships that are part of the Scouting Alumni and Friends Committee at all levels. The module covers what Scouting groups are affiliated with the Scouting Alumni and Friends Committee. 
  • Scouting Alumni — Awards and Recognition
    An overview of available Scouting Alumni and Friends awards and recognition items. It explains how to recognize those who help make Scouting Alumni and Friends as success.
  • Scouting Alumni — Communications

The course materials were developed by Kandra Dickerson, Craig Donais, Alvah Downs and Tim Acree of the Scouting Alumni and Friends Training Committee.
