All youth in the Heart of America Council should have the opportunity to benefit from Scouting. Implementing an effective Webelos to Scout transition plan is essential in order to retain current Cub Scouts by introducing them to the Boy Scout program.

Boy Scout Recruiter Patch Program
Boy Scouts can earn this free patch by inviting their friends to join their Troop.
It is as simple as recruiting a new Scout to your Troop. When a Scout application is processed at the Council Service Center, a patch is issued to the "recruiter."
Troop Open House
The Boy Scout troop open house allows a troop to swing open its doors and roll out the red carpet to welcome guests. It provides a forum to show off Scouting activities and the troop's accomplishments. It is an effective tool to reach youth who have never tried Scouting. If your Troop wants to schedule a Troop Open House, please contact your district executive. Professional Staff List
