Troop 575 is a "boy led" troop.
Over time, the Scouts are given more and more responsibility in leading
various activities in the troop. As they advance from one rank to
another, they are assigned more complex duties and more is expected of
them. Still, parents have a responsibility to help the boys
learn by being good "guides". As
in any organization, a Boy Scout troop requires a fair amount of work to
be well run.
Troop 575 expects at least one parent of each Scout
to serve as a volunteer
for the troop. Volunteer service can be accomplished in many ways.
They may serve as an Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop Committee
Member, lead a fundraiser, oversee a campout, etc. There are always numerous tasks that need to be accomplished
some on a continuous basis, others as individual events. Whatever you
decide to do, we appreciate the help, and you can be satisfied that you
are helping your son and his fellow Scouts have a better Scouting experience.
Of course, you benefit as well by
being able to dedicate some time away from the household to your
son's activities. You can watch him learn and grow in ways few
parents are able to do. What could be better than that?
