Recruiting Step Three: Let People Know! Let Families and Organizations know your Pack Fun Activities Plan!

Posted on Mar 20 2017 - 3:23pm

After Recruiting Step One (Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like), and while you tackle Step Two (Recruit more Leaders and Helpers), also take Step Three:  Let People Know!  Let Families and Organizations know your Pack Fun Activities Plan!  

When you Advertise your Activities ... you Promote your Pack -- so let your families, schools and community organizations know your calendar of fun activities early to get them excited (don't worry if you don't have every date organized with leaders and details yet).  Don't keep your fun activity plans secret -- share with current families, schools, groups and let prospective families and friends know too.  

Recruiting Tools are More than Flyers and Yard Signs:  Use Photos, Facebook and other Social Media, plus Old Media.  Photos of your Scouts having fun are best (so friends can see friends and want to join up -- like these from the 2016 Pinewood Derby).  So use any you can … flyers, emails, posters, facebook, calls, PTA, Car Pool, grocery store, barber shop, church ... encourage your families to tell others about how Scouting is fun and encourage them to show it on facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter.  

Post printed Flyers with your pictures or your pictures or wild pictures and your calendar of fun activities to let families know.  Hand ‘em out (with permission) at school (in classrooms, at the front desk, at bus/car pool, at PTA events), at church, at city hall, at parks and rec centers, stores, restaurants – wherever families go.  Get them posted on websites and facebook sites (school, church, city, neighborhood), email lists, twitter, family to family emails and facebook and twitter.  Share pictures and video of fun stuff Scouts do. 

Need help with Flyers?  DEs can help with printing.  District volunteers can help – email flyers@southfultonscouting.com.  Don’t forget posters, yard signs, kid to kid cards, stickers, door hangers.  Talk it up.  Call families.  Got families ready to join?  Get Applications Signed.  … see all Six Recruiting Steps for more, because a Pack with fun activities should have a presence at school and in the community to help Shout it Out …
