Are you a Merit Badge Counselor?

Posted by fsaenz on Jun 30 2022 - 9:27pm
    
  
A merit badge counselor is one of the coolest jobs in Scouting. These volunteers introduce Scouts to a topic about which they are passionate and knowledgeable of.  At the very least, a MB badge counselor helps a young person earn a merit badge and get one step closer to the next rank; and at the most, a MB counselor introduces a young person to a subject that could become a lifelong hobby or career.  
New rules introduced this year require MB counselors to:
Even if you were previously signed-up as a MB counselor, you must complete the above to continue working with the Scouts.  If you are interested, please complete the above forms and send them to Judith Jacob or Francisco Saenz via email; or drop them off at this Sunday’s meeting.  Want to know more?  Here’s some further reading about MB counseling. Want to know even more? Please reach out to one of our MB Coordinators, Neil Fernandes or Anthony Curran, for more information.
