Fall recruitment is a two part process!
Part One: THE BOY TALK- Boy Talks are and inschool presentation to the youth at your school about 1-3 days before your recruitment night
Part TWO: THE SCHOOL NIGHT- This is the special night your pack has designated to sign up new families
Boy Talks are an inschool presentation done by Pack Leaders and your District Executive to get BOYS excited about joining Cub Scouts.
These can be done in 3 Ways- Classroom presentations, School-wide assemblies, or Lunch time announcements
Boy Talks are what get kids wanting to bring the fliers home!!
School Nights are a SPECIAL night that is designated by your Pack for the sole purpose of signing up new Scout Families
These aren’t back to school nights in the school, these are to recruit new members. At Back to School Nights parents come to see teachers- Scouting School Nights parents come to sign up for Cub Scouts
These should be well organized and fun
There are lots of resources available for your Pack!!
School Night Folders
School Night Crates
