Recruitment Idea Books
The BSA has created really informative and easy-to-follow "Idea Books" for each of its Scouting Programs. Take a look at the book for your program and start implementing tried and true recruitment methods for your unit!
The BeAScout website is a great tool that allows people to find scouting units in their neighborhoods and connect with those units. A "pin" is a map pin on the BeAScout tool. If properly leveraged, the unit can use BeAScout as a recruiting tool or to sign-up new scouts at recruiting events. It can even be used to transfer scouts from one unit to another!
It is very important that this information is correct before Fall Recruitment. Here's how. Here's a great video on how to update it as well.
