Have You Updated Your Unit's BeaScout Pin
This Year?
BeAScout.org - The Smart & Simple Way to Recruit Scouts During COVID - 19

What is BeAScout?

When someone Googles phrases like “join Scouting,” “pack near me” or “find Scout troop,” the result in the coveted top spot is the BSA’s BeAScout page: beascout.scouting.org .

From there, families can type in their ZIP code, select the program that interests them (Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing or Sea Scouts) and click “Find and Apply.”What happens next? Well, that’s kind of up to each unit.

If your pin is updated, a prospective Scouting family will find your leader’s contact info, a link to your website and a brief description about your unit. If you have also turned on the “Apply Now” button, parents can also fill out the application online directly from BeAScout — or they can send you an email for more information.

How to update your BeAScout pin

Who can update the pin? The Key 3 of the unit — committee chair , chartered organization representative and unit leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Advisor, Skipper) — has access to Organization Manager in my.Scouting tools, which will allow them to set up the unit pin.

What’s the process for doing so? A step-by-step guide is available online at this link . Scroll down until you see the blue subtitle "Getting Started".

What has changed? Pin management is no longer in “Legacy Tools.” It has been updated with a new fresh look and easier navigation. Everything you need to set up the pin is in one tool, meaning no more moving back and forth between tools or pages.

Even more to come

More changes are also coming over the next few months to make reviewing and accepting youth and adult applications in my.Scouting even easier.

Look for more information about those changes as they go live in the tool.
