A Scouts Next Step - Eagle, is Not an Exit Sign!

You have a scout youth that is turning 18 soon. Scout leaders should have a plan worked out for the scout's parents leaving. Most Scouters and parents leave the program with their kids. The young adult can stay involved with your troop as an Assistant Scoutmaster. Many join Venture Crews.  Eventually, young adults move on to college or start their careers. This will limit the free time available to donate to scouting.  Scoutmasters, mentors should make time to talk about plans for the future. As an Eagle Scout, we have a commitment to our community, ourselves, and scouting. Scout leaders & mentors should talk with young adults about their future, but listen carefully and understand before giving advice. Leaders, it’s okay to say “I don’t know”. If you give it some time you can find someone who knows.

Most of the time, its time to leave the nest and get established on your own. Of course, supporting and volunteering should continue threw out your life. Later on, when your kids are ready for the scouting experience you will “be prepared”. Tell them;

  • Don’t feel rushed into making plans for goals you're not clear on. 
  • Not every career requires a degree, but every one of your choices will require experience. 
  • Remember to use your resources and thank hard about WHAT YOU REALLY WANT. 
  • No matter your path that you can choose you can always change your mind. 
  • You're not alone now or in the future. Others are there to help you on the journey.

Cub Scout Leaders... Hard to believe it but that Webelos scout in your den could someday be a doctor that saves your life. Always listen carefully and seek to understand what scouts are telling you. We troop leaders need to listen and understand our scouts. There the future we are helping to mold today, into tomorrow's leaders.

⚜️ Note: All adult leaders (over 18)  in Scouts BSA must take Youth Protection Training (YPT). If continuing with a troop, leaders must also fill out an Adult Application with a background check. If moving forward to a Venturing crew that application should be filled out. YPT must always be up to date and renewed every two years.
