> How Troop 1919 Operates > Responsibilities
Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmasters/Junior ASM
Scoutmaster (SM) manages the Scouts. Assistant Scoutmasters (ASM) are assigned to each patrol and work actively with Scouts. Junior ASMs (when available) also provide assistance to patrols. One or more troop guides are assigned to each new Scout patrol. We have an active new Scout training program and provide opportunities for advancement and to get requirements signed off through our new Scout training camp out, special training days and regular Scout outings. Our goal is to get your Scout to the First Class Rank in one year. For additional information about BST-1919, visit Scout roles and responsibilities.
What is Expected from Parents
Support your Scout and at the same you will be supporting the troop. Check the troop calendar and ask your Scout about upcoming events and camp outs. Ask about permission slips, etc. Make sure your Scout has appropriate clothing for outings particularly cold weather camping. In addition, you may consider becoming a volunteer by signing up for a committee.
Want to become involved?
We are always looking for helping hands to support our troops. We have several opportunities to become involved as a volunteer. Volunteer for a committee position – ex. transportation committee, recycling, Court of Honor Host, quartermaster adviser, etc. Volunteer to serve on boards of review during Scout meetings. Serve as an adult coordinator for an outing. If you would like to work with the Scouts in an Adult Leader position, sign up for Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. Be a merit badge counselor. Come on the outings to see the troops in action. Tell us what you can offer – rifle shooting, CPR, air traffic controller, bus maintenance, new ideas, etc. For additional information contact us today!
