Invitation for Adventure!
Do you need more Boy Scouts or a New Patrol? I have the answer to successful Boy Scout Recruitment! It is referred to as an Invitation to Adventure. Your unit finds several trained adult leaders willing to participate. The District Executive then visits the schools and talks to the appropriate aged boys. They are invited within the next two weeks to go camping. Within a few days we hold an organizational meeting with the boys and their parents. We discuss the plan, the gear they need, etc. The weekend is free (food, travel, etc) the only cost is the application and insurance fee to join scouts. Then immediately they are taken out by the leader volunteers for an exciting campout- separate from the other boys in the troop. They are taught how to build fires, how to pitch a tent, how to cook etc. They are giving the skills so that when they go with the troop the next time, they do not feel like fish out of water. This is designed to all happen within a week or two. Get them excited, get them out right away so they stay excited, and get them into the troop. A great way to bring in a new patrol. They recommend targeting 6th and maybe 7th grade. Get the boys back that we lost in Cub Scouts, show them this is not Cubs but the more exciting things Boy Scouts are made of. If you would like to give it a try, pick a date, leaders and contact Julie Evans to go to the schools for Boy Talks!

Scouting Builds Positive Character Marketing!
Hey Mountain Valley District Scouter's!
This article came out on October 28th through ScoutingWire and it was also presented at the last top Hands.
We wanted to make sure that each of you receive it, review it, so it can get used in the marketing of the Montana kids . This could help Scouters that are looking for ways to recruit and sell scouting. This is the Tufts Study.
I know some of you have seen this but, did it get out to our Parents?
This page includes a presentation and Dr. Richard Lerner’s explanation of just how Scouting Builds Positive Character.
If we can get this out to as many parents as possible it can have a big impact on membership, Program etc.. in the Montana Council.
Read the study and watch the video by going here http://www.mvdmt.org/tuft-study.html
