Boy Scout Troop 202
Carmel, IN


Service Coordinator

Description: Appointed by the Senior Patrol Leader to instill a spirit of service in the troop, promoting opportunities to serve the troop, chartered organization, community, and others.
Reports To: Senior Patrol Leader or an Assistant Senior Patrol Leader
Exemplify the values of servant leadership within the troop, promoting commitment to service as an important part of the troop's identity.
Update the troop calendar and Service webpage to include upcoming service events.
Announce, publicize, and encourage service opportunities for Scouts and adults in the troop --- not just for rank but because it is part of our commitment as Scouts and Scouters to help others at all times.
Attempt to involve other Scouts as leaders of individual service projects.  Coach them as needed so that they are able to make effective announcements (rather than the Service Coordinator being the voice of every project).
Organize at least one troop-wide service project during the term of office.
Check with each patrol to understand what service projects they are undertaking and to encourage their participation in troop-wide projects.
Work with the adult mentor to the Service Coordinator to help document the projects and hours completed so that the hours can be properly reported to the troop records and to the national BSA database.
Eligibility: First Class rank or higher, unless special approval is given by the Scoutmaster
