Journey to Excellence
2014 - Time to Check Progress
"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA. As we enter the last half of the year, now is a good time to review the status of your progress on this Journey. Each unit is measured on 13 different criteria that measures how well you are doing in that area and the total points gives you the score for the year. Here are the components that are in all programs.
Advancement - are your youth advancing? Recognition is key to help keeping the youth involved in the program. The council is in the top ten in the country for this; keep up the good work
Retention - how many youth are continuing with the program? If they are not happy, they leave. You can see your retention statistics below
Building Scouting - If your unit is not gaining in youth membership every year then you may be dying. You can see how many youth your unit needs to recruit below
Trained Leadership - a unit with trained leadership has a better advancement rate, higher retention rate, and FUN. Your unit can track this at My Scouting Tools
Camping - no matter which program you are in, they youth want to go outdoors.
Service Projects - service to the community is key in Scouting. Do a Good Turn Daily. We know that many units are doing service projects, but they need to be documented on the Good Turn webpage
Webelos-to-Scout Transition - this is not only how many boys cross over, but how well the Pack/Troop relationship is. Your Unit Commissioner is a key person to help you with this.
Budget - have you conducted your annual program planning and put together a budget?
Fitness - a Scout is physically fit; how have you incorporated this into your program? Visit the PALA website for more information.
Annual Charter Renewal - working with your Unit Commissioner to turn in all paperwork on time
The Journey to Excellence program is a method of rating how well a unit or the district is delivering the Scouting Promise to the youth in their community. The Bayside District qualified as a Bronze District in 2013 which places us in the 70 percentile of districts in the country. We are currently on track to achieve Bronze again this year. How is your unit doing?

Fall Membership Drive
Now is the time to start planning your fall New Scout Nights. The district has scheduled two training session to help you plan your New Scout Nights. The first is scheduled for August 9 at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church in Virginia beach with check in at 8:30 AM. The second is being held at Christ UMC in Norfolk on August 14 at 7:00 PM. These training sessions is designed for your Pack’s Membership Chair, Unit Chair, and Cubmaster to attend and find out the latest information. Anyone who will be involved in your fall Join Scout Nights should attend. Please RSVP to the council a week before the session so there will be enough handouts.
Things that your unit should be working on now to make New Member Night smooth
Program Planning calendar completed
Contact school to find out dates of Student Orientation and PTA Back to School dates
New Member Night scheduled and team assembled to run it
Mentors picked out to help your new adult leaders become oriented to the job
The two events listed in number two above are excellent opportunities to let the parents know that Scouts are in the school. These are not recruiting events but to promote knowledge of your unit. Have an information booth there with copies of your unit schedule to include when/where is the next meeting and how to contact for more information. You can recruit many youth this way before you even have your New Member Night.
The New Member Night is the time to make your unit shine. Have displays about what your has done in the past and what you have planned for the future. Have an activity planned for the new youth that will make them want to come back to the next meeting.
Here is a chart on how many youth your Pack would have to recruit to equal the number of youth you ended last year with.
|Unit Type||Balance of Membership 6/30|

Membership and your Unit...
Membership is one of the District's top priorities and the District's success depends on positioning our resources to be successful in the futures. When talking to unit leaders, it has been found that not everyone knows about all the resources that are available to make them successful in recruiting. Unit leaders can find many resources and ideas on the National Membership Resources Page. The District Membership Chair, your Unit Commissioner and District Executive are also good resources for you to get information. Membership is everyone's responsibility if we want the Boy Scouts to thrive in the future. Let us all take a look at the assets available on the National website and the people we know
District Membership has three key components; New Units, Recruiting, and Retention.
New Units means starting Packs or Troops in those areas that the Membership Committee identifies as underserved. The Membership Committee will identify a New Unit Organizer, Commissioner and Trainer to help start this new unit in those communities. If you are interested in helping with this; contact Pete Mack. There are many communities in the district that do not currently have a local Scout unit of any type. These youth are not getting an opportunity to join our great program.
Recruiting: Getting new youth and adults to join your unit is very important. If your unit is not recruiting new youth and growing in membership; you may not be doing well for long term health of the unit. This summer use peer-to-peer recruiting efforts to invite youth to your summer activities. If they see the fun of your day activities, they may sign up for all your activities and meetings.
It is also time to start planning when you are going to do your fall new member nights. Your Journey to Excellence goal is to have the event before September 30. Submit your school use forms now if you need to.
Retention: The third leg of membership and very important. Youth try out a program and need to be continually recruited to keep attending and retained. Participation is based on a number of factors; are they having fun; the program structure, and are their friends in the program.
Factors that may stop the family from coming are social-economical, off-putting adult leader behavior, and the youth not forming friendships with the members.
Some things that help with retention are:
assign a veteran Scouter be the mentor of the new family
involve the youth in your promotional activities
use the youth to recruit other youth
get the new parents involved in the unit committee so they understand what is going on
Here are your retention statistics. Those highlighted have already made the 2014 JTE Bronze level.

Does your unit have a good, strong relationship
with your school or does the relationship need strengthening? The
BSA® Adopt-a-School Program is an exciting and comprehensive
undertaking that will connect Scout packs, troops and crews across the
country with schools in their communities. Participating Scouts then
work, within clearly defined guidelines, to partner with school
administrations and offer the volunteer services that most efficiently
meet their school’s needs. With each unit offering their school a
minimum one-year commitment, meaningful community relationships are
built and significant changes will happen in the schools.
The hope at the heart of Adopt-a-School is to build strong, sustaining relationships with these schools… creating thousands of lasting community partnerships across the U.S. Through committed volunteer efforts – from landscaping and clean-up outside the school building to Scouts’ active participation in school events throughout the year – the BSA will become a defined presence in improving our nation’s schools.
