Today's featured best practice shared by Dr. Geoffrey Zoeller, Patriots' Path Council's vice president for membership and relations, comes from the Greater Cleveland Council - Partnering with Library. In four years of implementation, the campaign introduced 800 youth and families to Scouting. It has obvious implications for communities where school access has become a problem. The link also provides a quick and easy marketing strategy in the form of -- what else?? -- a bookmark. What a great way for two community organizations to work together on a project that serves youth.
