Opportunities list

Parents and other family members are sometimes reluctant to offer their help to local scouting simply because they don’t know how they can help. By creating an opportunities list you can let parents know what needs to be done.

You provide information about a variety of roles, including uniformed and non-uniformed, and can send out the list on its own, in a newsletter or with a section brochure.

Support material

The Parent’s Guide to Scouting resource can be used to provide parents with more information about Scouting and about how they can get involved. It can be a helpful conversation starter!
