Voice of the Scout (VOS)

Survey Input Helps Prepare Future Outdoor Adventure Programs 

As part of a national Boy Scout of America program, the Alamo Area Council is excited to announce their participation in the Voice of the Scout.  With over four million members, this program is being adopted as a key way to collect experiences and deliver upon the expectation of members as they participate in Scouting.  Visit the National BSA Voice of the Scout site HEREExternal Link, and the past "Findings and Analysis" page HEREExternal Link.

Look for an email from the Boy Scouts of America in your inboxes! Beginning mid-October, parents, Scouts & Venturers over 14, volunteers and chartered organizations will begin seeing surveys delivered into their email inboxes for Voice of the Scout.  The surveys have been designed to be very brief but will give needed insight into the variety of experiences at the unit and district within our council. 

Surveys will stay open for three weeks, then information will be referenced for making key decisions to drive Scouting forward, as guided by the people that matter most- our members.  It will be a continuous program, in that we will launch these surveys twice per year, with no household receiving more than one survey every six months. 

Due to the sheer volume of surveys in this program, we must deliver via email to effectively and efficiently collect opinions.  To make the most of this program we will begin asking for email updates regularly, so please make sure we have your most recent email by going online and editing your profile at www.AlamoAreaBSA.org/MyCouncil or creating a MyCouncil profile at www.AlamoAreaBSA.org/MyCouncil/Join.  Please also provide correct email addresses during the annual unit recharter process.

Voice of the Scout is how we will help guide our decision-making for our future outdoor adventure programs and operational delivery.  Please take a few minutes of your time to participate.
