The program section of the Tiger Cub [[den meeting]] is usually divided into three parts, corresponding to the [[Tiger Cub Motto]]:
+
-
* '''Share'''. Each boy shares something that he's done since the last meeting.
+
-
* '''Search'''. Leaders and [[Den Chiefs]] will discuss the next Go See It outing. This activity could fulfill one of the achievement requirements or one of the elective requirements, or it could relate to the [[monthly theme]].
+
-
* '''Discover'''. During Discover time, the den leader may introduce the monthly theme and talk about what the den will be doing for the pack meeting. Then the boys will play games, have activities, take part in outdoor activities, or work on advancement requirements.

As a boy completes each part of the Tiger Cub achievements, he will be awarded either an orange (den activities), white (family activities), or black ("Go See It") bead. When the boy has earned five beads of each color, he is eligible to receive his Tiger Cub badge. The Tiger Cub badge is presented to the adult partner at the next [[pack meeting]]. In an impressive ceremony, the adult partner in turn presents the badge to the boy.

The individual rank parts now receive a belt loop for the immediate reward, with the actual rank presentation occurring at a [[Court of Honor]].

"The Bobcat badge is earned prior to all other ranks. If a boy joins Cub Scouting as a Wolf, Bear, or Webelos, he must earn the Bobcat badge first before receiving any other award or rank. - Advancement Policies, pp. 18-21 For Tiger through Bear ranks, if the activity is completed outside of the den meeting, the parent, adult partner, or another trusted adult should sign in the boy’s handbook, indicating the Cub Scout has done his best to complete the requirement. The den leader then approves that requirement after consultation with the family or the boy to confirm completion. If the requirement is completed in a den meeting, the den leader signs in both places. Den leaders may, however, ask an assistant or parent who helps at meetings to play the role of “Akela” and assist with the approvals. For Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks, the den leader signs for approval of all requirements, unless the den leader delegates this responsibility.

Tigers can complete Tiger Scout Adventures at any time. The Tiger Scout uniform has six parts.

“A boy on joining wants to begin Scouting right away.”
Robert Baden-Powell
