On The Lookout For Leaders

Simple Scouting summertime events are a great way to identify how parents in your Pack really do want to help … now is a great time to “turn parents into helpers and helpers into leaders”. Don’t forget adult social events to bond parents and leaders into a working team. There is no single “silver bullet” solution, but there is a quiver of arrows to help you hit the target when you try to grow your team. Let's leverage the Atlanta Area Council's Recruiting Leaders page.
