Recruiting/Open House for Packs

Kim Salvo

It can be a challenge to “focus” on recruitment for your Pack while also managing all the other necessary day-to-day tasks that are essential to a quality unit.  Instead of looking at recruitment as another seasonal task, this course will help you approach membership as a year-round philosophy by giving helpful tips to incorporate recruiting new youth and parents into your existing program……and host an Open House that makes everyone want to return!

The Hows of HOWs: Building a relationship with your House of Worship Chartered Organization

John Paterakis

The majority of Scout units in the United States are charted to some form of house of worship (“HoW”). Yet, in many cases, the relationship between the HoW and their unit is at arm’s length. Learn how to strengthen that relationship; how to navigate the leadership of your HoW, how to take advantage of the benefits offered to ministries, and how to get clergy and youth ministries invested in your unit’s success!

Peer-to-peer recruiting discussion

Mike Lennon, Joe Schiltz

A discussion about recruiting techniques and how GNYC can use peer-to-peer strategy to grow Scouting. In many cases our current members and families are the closest link to potential new members. Come ready to discuss these ideas, incentives, messages and tools that units and families need that will aid in successful future campaigns.
