New recruiting materials will help you catch a Tiger (or Cub Scout or Boy Scout or Venturer)

Materials are also available en Español.

The first step’s always the hardest.

And when it comes to recruiting future Scouts, that first step is simple awareness. If a boy (or Venturing-age girl) in your area doesn’t know about your Scout unit, how can you recruit him or her?

Thankfully, you don’t have to do all the work yourself. The BSA’s marketing team has your back with a treasure trove of fliers, billboards, posters, yard signs, door hangers, bookmarks, postcards, Web banners, PSAs, and e-blasts. And it’s all available in three flavors: English, Spanish, and bilingual.

New this month are Tiger Cub recruiting materials, which join the high-quality Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing materials already available.

Simply download the PDFs, add info about your unit’s meeting location, Web site, and contact info, and then print/post/publish wherever boys and girls are found. I’m thinking schools, youth sports facilities, places of worship, supermarkets, community centers, etc.

Find all the National Recruitment Campaign materials at the BSA’s marketing site.

  1. These are great, but I can’t figure out how to add our pack information. I would love to print out a bunch of book marks and pass them out, but I can’t even figure out how to print more than one per page. I guess I’m just not sufficiently well-versed in Adobe Acrobat, so I’ve been creating my own stuff in Microsoft Word. It is far less awesome. 😦

    • Print them, then run them back through the printer to add your pack information in the blank space on the bottom. I’ve been doing that with pre-printed BSA recruiting material for years.

  2. I am disappointed that the Boy Scout web banners use Flash. A couple of major players in mobile technology don’t support Flash on their mobile devices so the web banners won’t even show up for them. Additionally, I think it would have been helpful to have the option of a QR code on the yard signs or flier. It does look like there is room to add them manually.
