Recruitment through Partnership with Local Library

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.

  1. This a great idea! Would we also be able to partner with the Girl Scouts as well so that all young people 6-21 will have the opportunity to join either the Boy Scouts or the Girl Scouts. With their help hopefully we can hit twice as many libraries as well!
