Onboarding Specialists

The Sam Houston Area Council is looking for staff members to assist the council in a new initiative for new unit development. These employees, called "Onboarding Specialists," will guide new Scouting units (Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing) through the steps of new unit organization. Through this process, they will assist new chartering organizations in the identification of adult volunteers for new Scouting, assist the new adult volunteers with program planning, budgeting and scheduling, guide the new adult volunteers through district and BSA resources to be trained, and guide the new adult leaders through the start-up of the new unit's programming to ensure the program is launched and the new unit is chartered.

Candidates must have knowledge of the Scouting programs with an understanding of unit organization. Interested applicants should send their resumé to our Director of Membership Development, Dustin Dupuis, at dustin.dupuis@scouting.org.
