|Scouting for Food March 16 - 23, 2019|
Scouting for Food is the largest community service food drive in our area involving Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturers and Explorers.
Your unit should participate in the Council's Scouting for Food community service project. Let your community know about this service project that helps restock the shelves of your local community food banks. Let's all work together across the Council and make this year’s effort even more successful than last year’s and collect more than 85,000 pounds of food across the Northern Lights Council!
Tips for a successful Scouting for Food:
Thank you for your unit’s participation in this very important community service project. If you have questions contact your local District Scouting for Food Coordinator or District Executive.
New District Executive
We are pleased to announce that Shaun Grover has been selected as the District Executive in the Flickertail district.
Shaun’s primary responsibility will be the support of membership recruitment, new unit sales, fundraising, volunteer engagement and program support in the Flickertail District. He will also support some level of district operations on the Western areas of the Northern Sky District. Shaun will be reporting to Kevin Mehrer who has accepted a promotion to Senior District Director. Shaun has a Bachelor of Science in Finance from North Dakota State University, and has previous experience in sales, customer service and in operating a small business.
Join us in congratulating Shaun as he works with the Northern Sky team to grow the Scouting programs from West Fargo to Jamestown! He will be joining the Northern Lights Council on November 16, 2018.
Youth Protection Training
The Northern Lights Council will be conducting Youth Protection Training via video conference (Go to Meeting) in September and October. As previously announced, a NEW Youth Protection Training course is required for all registered leaders before they will be able to renew their BSA membership later this year. The current Youth Protection Training certificate (from the old course) will expire on October 1, 2018.
Download the Youth Protection Training flyer for dates and times of upcoming training sessions for people that want to become certified to conduct the new Youth Protection Training or just to complete the training for yourself.
Unit Charter Renewal and Youth Protection Training
As we begin the annual Unit Charter Renewal Campaign, it is important to note that current Youth Protection Training will be required for all leader renewals at the time the online charter renewal is completed. What this means is, if a unit has a leader that is not current in Youth Protection Training, the unit will not be able to finish the online charter renewal.
