Isn’t the Introduction to Scouting too wordy and complicated for Joey Scouts?

The Introduction to Scouting is not part of the Achievement Pathways that should be done by one person, alone!

It’s all about a Joey Scout, or Cub Scout, or youth member of any age having a discussion with another person. This person will be able to coach the Joey Scout/youth member through these questions and answers.

We have extra information resources/links/pop ups throughout the system, including Introduction to Scouting + Introduction to Section to support both the Joey Scout/youth member, as well as the person working through the element with them.

The system does not take away from the Leadership roles which occur in all sections, in an age appropriate manner. The formal and non-formal leadership roles help support the program, and in Joey Scouts might be through activities, games, stories, crafts, small conversations etc
