The Alamo Area Council along with all units are moving into a new era of Scouting. As we adjust to the challenge of keeping our youth and families engaged everyone is moving to online technology to deliver the program.
The staff has recently contacted most units and it is amazing how fast units have begun using Facebook Live, Zoom, and other tools to meet and communicate.
Our Council is on the cutting edge Nationally in live broadcasts on Facebook and using Zoom for Merit badges and Leadership Training classes. We receive calls daily from other Councils wanting to discuss what we are doing and planning in the future. A lot of our success is due to leadership from our volunteers and we really appreciate that.
Now is also the time to look at how the changes in the way we deliver the program might effect Advancements. National recently sent out an update to the official Guide to Advancement 2019.
Please review the update which is in a question and answer format : 18MAR2020_QA Regarding COVID-19 Related Advancement Difficulties_FINAL (002)
These updates will help youth to continue to advance during these challenging times.
