The BSA offers a unique educational opportunity through its Merit Badge Program.  Wide varieties of topics are available for individual and group study.  The topics and techniques provide a tool for character development while giving the Scouts experience working with BSA registered adults who are new to them.  This program also allows the Scout to learn hobby and career skills while providing the BSA registered and trained adult Counselors the opportunity to give back to the community by servicing youth.  Cascade Pacific Council suggests that no youth complete more than five Merit Badges from any given Counselor so that he has the opportunity to experience a diversity of Counselors and experiences.



Who Can Be A Merit Badge Counselor?
Anyone who has reached the age of 18 can be a Merit Badge Counselor.  There is no monetary cost associated with the application.  Men, women, minorities along with non-Scout members of the community make the Scouting program stronger through diversity and allow for wider growth and learning experiences for the Scouts.  Community organizations (YMCA, athletic clubs, churches, fraternal organizations, etc.) are also good sources for Counselors. 

The adult, through vocation or avocation, must know the topic well enough to make it interesting for the young men he/she is counseling.  The candidate must have the ability to work with young men between the ages of 11 and 17; must be willing to register and be re-certified yearly by their local Boy Scout unit or District; and allow for a federal background check.  The adult must be trained in youth protection guidelines and use the requirements in the current edition of the Boy Scout Requirements book {new each year -- show a copy of the current year’s book, which is generally available by February each year.  Note that the badges that have requirements changes are listed on the front inside cover} along with the Merit Badge Pamphlet(s) {have some pamphlets for demonstration, make note of the fact that although the requirements change the pamphlets often take longer to reprint} for the Merit Badge(s) he/she chooses to counsel.

The person who approaches the potential Merit Badge Counselor should explain the requirements for becoming a Counselor, and the reasons why registration and training are essential requirements for working with our youth.

Scouting offers a great chance for adults to work with youth as role models, and to impact a new generation.  Every adult can use some help as a role model, and Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader.   Every adult involved in Scouting should be trained.

Wood Badge is advanced training in leadership development. There are two parts to Wood Badge training: learn the material in six days on course, and then practice the leadership skills in your Scouting position. This combination of hands-on, direct experience and application of leadership skills is incredibly effective. Wood Badge has served as a source of training and inspiration to thousands of Scouters, who, in their turn have affected the lives of millions of America's youth. Most participants also discover ways to not only to use the leadership skills in their Scouting positions but also to better their personal lives.

For six days in two 3-day weekends, you live, learn, and work with other Scouters, while being exposed to the leadership skills applicable to the development of both Scouters and Scouts. Through this living and working experience, you develop knowledge and practical understanding of these leadership skills. You will clarify what you want to accomplish in your Scouting position, and learn how to apply these skills to your Pack, Troop, Crew, Team, Ship, District or Council.

Subsequently, you practice these leadership skills to help make you successful in your Scouting position (you complete a ticket you write). A Guide helps you as a resource, a counselor, and a friend. Your Guide will assist you in fully understanding what you learned from the course, and will help you accomplish your goals in your Scouting position by applying that understanding.
