The troop is staffed entirely by adult volunteers, typically parents of Scouts in the program, and additional help is always needed. The troop hopes adults will volunteer their services as the need arises. As an aid to matching adults’ interests and abilities with specific troop needs, parents and guardians are asked to complete the troop’s Adult Information Form. With this information, the task of knowing who to call upon and for what is much easier. The troop can’t provide a quality program without essential volunteer support. Please return this form at your Scout’s first Troop Meeting.
Parents interested in taking on leadership roles and specific responsibilities are especially invited to attend Troop Committee meetings to become informed and involved in Scouting. Our Committee meets monthly during the school year typically on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Meeting locations vary and are held as needed so contact the Committee Chair to get on the e-mail list to receive meeting details.
Adults who are interested in becoming Troop Leaders should contact our Scoutmaster or Committee Chairperson to discuss interests and opportunities. Women and men are welcomed to help with program, committee, and administrative positions, as well as by attending monthly campouts, summer camp, and other programs. Adults ready to join Troop 23’s volunteer ranks should complete a Troop Leadership Registration Packet. There are training opportunities for Troop Leaders offered through Council and online. Advanced Leader training is also offered to those who wish to take the next step.
Though volunteer needs vary, typically the troop has ongoing needs for Merit Badge Counselors and Patrol Advisors.
