Be A Scouting Influencer
We want to reach out to each potential Scout and their family with a personal invitation to join Scouting, where they will learn positive values, new skills and have fun with friends. Our goal is to recruit 3,000 new families in 30 days.
In order to reach this goal, we need our Scouting families to help us relaunch and rebuilding Scouting’s membership using a grassroots social media campaign.
Post pictures or videos of fun Scouting activities to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or Snap Chat and share what Scouting means to your family.
Use #3K30Days #LaunchtheAdventure #RelaunchScouting #InfluenceTheAdventure.
