Scouts' Own

Scouts' Own is a traditional scouting activity that focuses on the spiritual but should not be church per B-P. He stated that it is a "a voluntary uplifting of their hearts by the boys in thanksgiving for the joys of life, and a desire on their part to seek inspiration and strength for greater love and service for others" (B-P's Outlook).  We are all-inclusive but function as a secular scouting organization, but still as scouts we should explore ethics and our beliefs. Has anyone done a Scouts'…See More

I am going to organize an interest meeting in late Spring/Summer. I know each volunteer has to be registered and pass a background check. Is the background check automatic or is it something we do separately? If someone already has a background check for other organizations can these be used? Is there specific training at all that volunteers must complete before they can take on kids?

Thanks William! I already emailed back and forth with them today and it looks like they will not be continuing after this year. :(
