Sea Scout Recruiting and Retention
Recruiting and retaining motivated Scouts and quality leaders is a full time job for most units. We are developing tools that we hope you will find useful in your efforts to recruit and retain membership in your units.
Be A Scout
The National Council has developed Be A Scout as an interactive web tool that can help prospective Scouts an leaders to locate and learn more about your Ship. The Be A Scout! program can help your unit grow and be found when you log into and update your unit information.
When interested youth and adults use Be A Scout, they enter their city or zip code information and an interactive map populates Scout units that are close to them. They select a unit by clicking on a "pin" that takes them to an informational page that tells them about the unit they have selected. The information they view is customized by the units themselves and may include meeting place information and logos, e-mail addresses, phone numbers and other important contact information. Interested persons can even leave information for you to contact them. Be A Scout is an awesome recruting tool!
Learn more about how to customize your Ship's Be A Scout information by visiting the National Councils website and downloading an informational presentation here.

Be a Volunteer
Without thousands of volunteers, Sea Scouts programs would not be possible. If you are not yet a volunteer — but are interested in becoming one — there are several ways to get involved.
Sea Scout leaders serve in one of the BSA's most important roles. Our Skippers, Mates, and Committee Members directly mentor youth and make a difference in the lives of millions.
Please note: The BSA is committed to child safety and ensuring that every youth has a positive experience in Scouting. Before assigning an adult to a leadership position, a background check is required.
Share your expertise and special talents to serve your local BSA council.
Councils are always in need of active and engaged board members, unit committee members, merit badge counselors, and special event committee personnel.
You can volunteer with the Sea Scouts, BSA even if you don't have a lot of time to commit. Help supervise a cruise, prepare lunch at an event, work at an event registration table, or do any number of small tasks help Sea Scouts in your community.
