Voice of the Scout

Voice of the Scout (VOS) is an online survey program that will help guide the future of the Scouting movement through feedback from you. Just a few minutes of your time will give you the opportunity to give constructive feedback to the Heart of America Council that will improve your family's Scouting experience.

The results from these surveys will give the Heart of America Council an idea of what we can do better to support our members. Your participation is critical so please take the time to let your voice be heard.

Social Media and Youth Protection

All Scouts and leaders should abide by Scouting guidelines as outlined in the Scout Oath and Law. Protecting safety and Youth Protection should be a key focus.

Whether you are using Facebook, Twitter or YouTube be sure to review and adhere to the terms of service and existing guidelines outlined by the service. All communications on Social Media channels must be public and available for administrators to monitor at all times. "Two Deep" leadership policies should govern all online communications. Be sure that all communications takes place in a public forum. Any adult to youth email should include a "Cc" to a registered adult leader of a parent and they should be included on any message thread.
