Merit Badge Counselors Needed

Each of you has skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm that you can pass on to our scouts.

You can share those skills by becoming a Merit Badge Counselor. Our Troop needs Merit Badge Counselors for all topics.

Click on this article that gives an overview of what is required to become a Merit Badge Counselor, which include being over 18 years old, current YPT, and your enthusiasm and expertise in a particular subject.

Meridian District also holds Merit Badge Counselor Training at their monthly Roundtable. Check out the Roundtable calendar for the next one. We encourage parents to attend the Merit Badge Counselor training at the Roundtable, which are held at the LDS Church in Alamo. There is no obligation to become a counselor afterward. Please attend to learn ways in which you can share your talents and skills to help our scouts.

Parents who wish to become counselors may begin with a simple merit badge such as Fingerprinting or Coin Collecting. Shorten the learning curve by asking current counselors for tips on how they present and discuss the requirements of that merit badge with scouts.

Do you wish to lead a Merit Badge Session for our Troop? Please contact David Hetherington to propose dates for your session.

Consider becoming a merit badge counselor or add to your list of merit badges if you are already a MB counselor. If you need to add or drop a merit badge, please email this completed form to David Hetherington.
