2 HOW THE TROOP WORKS THE BOY-LED TROOP Empowering boys to be leaders is the core of Scouting. Scouts learn by doing, and what they do is lead their patrols and their troop. The boys themselves develop a troop's program, and then take responsibility for figuring out how they will achieve their goals. A Boy Scout troop is a small democracy. With the Scoutmasters direction, the boys are formed into patrols, plan the troop's program, and make it a reality. In order for that to happen, the troop relies upon Scouts serving in positions of responsibility. The key boy leaders of the troop make up the Patrol Leaders' Council (PLC / a.k.a. GREEN BAR). They are the senior patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leaders, troop guides, and other boy leaders at the discretion of the Scoutmaster and SPL. THE PATROL LEADERS COUNCIL The PLC (a.k.a. Green bar Meetings) plans and runs the troop's program and activities and gives long range direction with an annual program planning conference that lays out the troop's calendar for the coming 6 9 months. The Scoutmaster and troop committee retain veto power over the decisions of the patrol leaders' council, but should need to exercise it only in the rare occasions when the plans of the PLC would violate BSA policy or could lead to a situation that might jeopardize the safety and well being of troop members. THE PATROL METHOD Boy-led patrols are the building blocks of a Boy Scout troop. A patrol is a small group of boys who are more or less similar in age, development, and interests. Working together as a team, patrol members share the responsibility of making the patrol a success. They gain confidence by serving in positions of patrol leadership. All enjoy the friendship, sense of belonging, and achievement of the patrol and each of its members. Each patrol selects a name for itself, decides on a yell, and designs a flag. First year Scouts are typically assigned to a new-scout patrol while they work toward the goal of completing the requirements for First Class. An older, more experienced Scout will be appointed by the senior patrol leader, with the advice and consent of the Scoutmaster, to serve as troop guide for the new-scout patrol. The troop guide helps new Scouts through the early challenges of troop membership. An assistant Scoutmaster works closely with the troop guide and the new-scout patrol to ensure that each Scout has every opportunity to succeed right from the start. Page 2 of 2

3 ADULT LEADERSHIP PARENTS Scouting is a family affair. Without substantial support and involvement on the part of the Scouts family, it is impossible for the Scouting program to maximize its potential. There are a number of means of possible adult involvement with Troop 622. Each has its own features and benefits. They are: Parent, Merit Badge Counselor, Troop Committee Member, Troop Committee/Sub Committee Coordinator/Chair, and Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster. THE TROOP COMMITTEE...

Parents are always welcome at the monthly Committee meetings. It s a good place to meet the Adult Leaders in our Troop and get up to date on Troop happenings.

He is the adult leader responsible for the image and program of the troop The Scoutmaster and assistant Scoutmasters work directly with the Scouts. The importance of the Scoutmasters job is reflected in the fact that the quality of guidance will affect every youth and adult involved in the troop. The Scoutmaster can be male or female, but must be at least 21 years old. The Scoutmaster is appointed by the head of the chartered organization. The Scoutmasters duties include: General Train and guide boy leaders. Work with other responsible adults to bring Scouting to boys. Page 4 of 4

5 Mentor the principles of Scouting. Meetings Meet regularly with the Patrol Leaders Council for training and coordination in planning troop activities. Attend all troop meetings, or, when necessary, arrange for a qualified adult substitute. Attend troop committee meetings. Conduct periodic parent sessions to share the program and encourage parent participation and cooperation. Take part in annual membership inventory and uniform inspection, charter review meeting, and charter presentation. Guidance Conduct Scoutmaster Conferences for all rank advancements.

Activities Make it possible for each Scout to experience at least 10 days and nights of camping each year. Participate in council and district events. Build a strong program using proven methods presented in Scouting literature. Conduct all activities under qualified leadership, safe conditions, and the policies of the chartered organization and the Boy Scouts of America. THE ASSISTANT SCOUTMASTERS... To fulfill the obligations of the troop, the Scoutmaster, with the assistance of the troop committee, recruits assistant Scoutmasters to help operate the troop. Each assistant Scoutmaster may be assigned specific program duties and reports to the Scoutmaster. They also provide the two-deep leadership standards set by the Boy Scouts of America. An assistant Scoutmaster may be 18 years old, but at least one in each troop should be at least 21, so he or she can serve in the Scoutmasters absence. A troop should recruit as many assistant Scoutmasters as possible. It has been found that many successful troops have three or more. BOY LEADERSHIP POSITIONS As per the BSA national model, Troop 622 is a Boy led troop, and operates under the Patrol Method. As such, the Scouts hold certain leadership positions, either elected or appointed. Each of these positions has prescribed roles and responsibilities as per BSA, which are then modified as necessary to fit the individual Troop program. All leadership positions require Scoutmaster approval prior to announcing or requesting candidacy. Scoutmaster may waive any requirements deemed necessary for the good order of the Troop. All Scouts accepting leadership positions are expected to set a good example, wear the Scout uniform correctly, live by the Scout Oath and Law, and show and develop Scout spirit.
