BSA's New Technology & Tools PDF Print E-mail

Are you using all of the BSA’s new technology tools?

In the last year, the BSA has released new tools to help volunteers reach out to new families and manage all of their Scouting information more easily.  Make sure that you have checked these out and are using them to help your pack, troop, or crew be the best it can be!

BeAScout

  • People interested in joining Scouting can visit this website and use a Google map to locate their nearest pack, troop, or crew.  They can then learn more about the unit, send the unit a message, and even complete youth and adult applications!
  • The first step is to make sure that your unit’s map pin is set up and has current contact information.  Then activate your online applications and approve them as the come in.  Both tasks are accessible by the unit “Key Three”: the unit leader (Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/ Crew Advisor), Chartered Organization Representative, and Committee Chair.
  • Need help with BeAScout?
  1. All the info is here.
  2. PowerPoint on how to set up your map pin is here.
  3. Video on how to activate and approve online applications is here.
