Adult Involvement–Merit Badge Counselors
Troop 23 is always interested in adding to the ranks of Merit Badge Counselors; and this provides an ideal volunteer opportunity for adults with full control over scheduling their volunteer efforts. Scouts learn about sports, crafts, science, trades, business, and future careers as they earn merit badges, a critical component of advancement for the Star, Life and Eagle ranks.
In keeping with tradition, all Troop 23 Scouts establish a foundation of outdoor skills, self-sufficiency, and active citizenship by earning their Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class ranks before any work on Merit Badges.
The Merit Badge Counselor (M.B.C.) is a key player in the Advancement Program. They offer time, knowledge, and other resources to give Scouts the opportunity to broaden their horizons. Combining fun with learning, an MBC is both teacher and mentor as the Scout learns by doing.
