Long Term Volunteers
Certain jobs must be performed if Cub Scouts are to receive the type of fun-filled and meaningful program to which they are entitled. If you volunteer for and are selected as a member of the pack committee, it is because of your interest in helping our boys. By making the commitment to serve as a leader, you share in one or more of the following responsibilities with other members of the pack committee: record keeping and correspondence, finances, advancement, training, public relations, and membership and reregistration. The pack committee chair decides how the responsibilities should be divided and gives committee members assignments.
Thank you for considering to be a den leader, filling THE most important role in Cub Scouting and helping a den thrive and grow. Without your help and leadership, the den cannot exist, our boys cannot be served, and the pack cannot be sustained. Boys join Cub Scouts for excitement, to be with friends, and to have fun. If your first few meetings are fun, for you and for the Cub Scouts, they will come back for more … and future meetings will be easier and easier for you.
The first thing you should know is that you are not alone. Hundreds of thousands of adults have preceded you in Cub Scouting. Their experience and wisdom are available to you through a number of resources that your fellow Den Leaders and your committee will share and discuss with you. You won’t have to reinvent the wheel as you plan, prepare for, and conduct meetings.
