New year, New Start, New Goals
Our troops first meeting of the year was held this past Monday night. This meeting is traditionally our troops election night when the Scouts choose their new leaders for the new year. Not only did the Scouts elect a great team of Scouts into new positions, we also took the time for the Scouts to set new goals for the year.
Our incumbent Senior Patrol Leader (Charles) and I decided to do something different with our goal setting. We had our Eagle Scouts and our senior scouts meet with all of the other Scouts 1 on 1. They reviewed with each scout where each was in their Trail to Eagle and set goals for the next month, quarter and half year. These goals were written down and have been placed in a binder for our advancement team to review with each scout each month to help keep these goals top off mind with the Scouts and a priority in their life.
It was really exciting to see this one on one interaction between the Scouts and I cannot wait to see how successful this will be this year.
Our troop goal is to have 100% of the scouts advance at least 1 rank in 2017.
