There is no such thing as a recruiting season. Scout units that fail often make this mistake. It is important to understand that scout units need a constant flow of new youth recruits. Here is a way to recruit new scouts year-round. The development of a clear recruiting program is critical to success. Each season has its challenges and recruitment goals should be set. Once you have established a recruitment program it can be repeated every year. It's also important to be ready for the new scouts coming to your unit. Make sure that your website is up to date with current information. Make sure that you have the tools to enroll new scouts when they show up at your events. Youth recruitment should be the focus. Parents can come along later as leadership is needed. Make sure that you're ready when they are and you will have a good recruitment program.
