Recruiting Step 1 - Update your BeAScout.org "Pin"

Updating your BeAScout.org “pin” is simple, and it’s a good way to make sure your information is current. Displaying last year’s Cubmaster or meeting time doesn’t exactly impress new families interested in joining. We call it a “pin” because when families search BeAScout.org and ask to find Scout units within a certain number of miles around their address, the answers are listed next to a map with what looks like pins marking the location of each unit.


What is BeAScout?

When someone Googles phrases like “join Scouting,” “pack near me” or “find Scout troop,” the result in the coveted top spot is the BSA’s BeAScout page: beascout.scouting.org.


From there, families can type in their ZIP code, select the program that interests them (Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing or Sea Scouts) and click “Find and Apply.”


What happens next? Well, that’s kind of up to you.


If your pin is updated, a prospective Scouting family will find your leader’s contact info, a link to your website and a brief description about your unit.


If you have also turned on the “Apply Now” button, parents can also fill out the application online directly from BeAScout — or they can send you an email for more information.


Descriptions of key tools and more (including videos) can be found at scouting.org/resources/online-registration/.
