How to Find Interested Parents and Scouts PDF Print E-mail
If you would like to sponsor a team, you will need interested parents and Scout.  You can find them in a variety of ways.

 
1 – Talk to people

 
If you are a religious leader:

You can mention the start of a new team to members of your church or temple and mention it at sermons where appropriate.

 
If you are a member of a parent/teacher group:

You can bring the start of a team up as new business and ask the members to consider sponsorship.

 
If you are member of a community or service organization:

You can bring the start of a team up as new business and mention it to members.

 
If you are a business leader:

You can mention the start of a team at meetings, picnics, get-togethers and when appropriate, hold a meeting to discuss sponsorship.

 
Below is basic script that you can use to speak with others.  Of course feel free to put it in your own words:

“Adventure Scouts USA is the only fully nondiscriminatory Scout Program in the United States, with three Scout Program, all coed, for ages 2-18.  Our Scouts choose, organize, and lead their meetings, programs and activities, doing what is FUN for them.”

If you are a religious leader:

You can hang fliers at your location in common rooms and particularly at a children’s service or in children’s play rooms.
