West Gary, a member of the Board of TLACP (The Learning Academy of College Park), and a College Park Resident, College Park United Methodist Church member & Eagle Scout has reached out to us with this message:  "I am on the board of TLACP (The Learning Academy of College Park), which operates out of the education building of the College Park United Methodist Church.  The Center Director, Ricci Lewis-Johnson, has asked the church to coordinate a Family Workday on April 8th at 9AM.  The goal is to improve the play area for the children, install a raised garden, and improve the existing raised gardens.  She will be sharing her sketches with us soon, and I expect the church will respond in normal fashion to help as much as they can.  I thought this might be a good service opportunity for the Scouts.  I’m not sure if your Troop is interested in participating, or if you have Scouts who need service projects for rank requirements.  If you are interested in participating, please let me know."  West Gary, TLACP, 1805 Harvard Ave, College Park, GA. 30337, Phone: 404.766.9252.

What's in the "More Help For Leaders" page?

Posted on Jan 30 2017 - 9:55am

Well, more help for Leaders and Parents putting on the Scouting Program for our Youth.  Help like: 

  • Finances.  See our Unit Finances page for information about fundraising and other finance resources.
  • Scoutreach Assistance.  The Atlanta Area Council has financial aid and other resources described on the ScoutReach Resources page.
  • Uniforms and Gear.  Many Scouts and Units need help with uniforms and gear, and so our Uniform + Gear Bank page has a plan for donating and distributing uniforms and gear.
  • Advancement.  See our Advancement page for resources on Boy Scout and Cub Scout rank advancement and awards. 
  • Den Adventure Plans.  Cub Scout Den Adventures (they are Adventuresnot merely "meetings") are very critical ... we have lots of ideas at Cub Scout Adventure Plans, including scanned versions of the Den Leader Guides and resources.
  • Service Projects.  Most every Unit does Service Projects, and that page has ideas.
  • Journey to Excellence Recognition.  Some Units use the Journey to Excellence plan to improve.
  • Commissioners (Unit Service).  Volunteers who help units beyond their "home" units are Commissioners ... see Commissioner Service for ways we help.
  • Charter Renewal.  Every Unit needs to renew their charter by the end of the year, and our Unit Charter Renewal page has all your resources for that.
  • On Line News.  We share links to Boys Life & Scouting Magazines and more, like http://scoutingwire.org/.
  • Contacts.  Contact District Leaders and Adults in other units through our Roster.  Key leaders are also listed in the attachment at our About Scouting & How to Join page.
  • Training.  Trained Leaders have more fun, get more out of the Program, and help more youth. See Leader Training for ways to become trained and have more fun.
  • Recruiting.  See our Recruiting Tools page for great ideas to help you recruit new families.
  • Activity Ideas.  Want ideas about Pack or Troop Activities ... see our Month by Month Activity Ideas page, and see what our Units are Doing.
