Purpose

This work sheet is designed for use by a district or council committee responsible for advancement. It provides a convenient method for building a merit badge counselor list.

In all cases, merit badge counselors must be approved by the district or council committee responsible for advancement and must be registered as an adult leader with the Boy Scouts of America.

How to Use

1. Determine the area that the merit badge counselor list must serve.
2. Select head counselors for each merit badge group listed inside this work sheet. Enter their names and addresses in the proper spaces.
  • The head counselor is responsible for all badges in the group. The counselor is not expected to be an expert in each badge, but should be capable of recruiting those who are qualified.
  • The number of counselors required for each badge depends upon the badge's popularity with Scouts.
3. Check all existing lists of counselors to determine who are active.
4. Obtain a supply of A Guide for Recommending Merit Badge Counselors. These leaflets will help you recruit new counselors.
  • Each leaflet tells the merit badge story and includes a form on which an individual may recommend prospective merit badge counselors. Distribute the leaflets at meetings of organizations such as service clubs, professional groups, parents' meetings, and other such meetings. This will produce the names of many prospective counselors for recruiting.
5. When this work sheet is complete, use it as a guide for reproducing additional lists for distribution to all units.
6. Keep this work sheet updated by continually recruiting new counselors to replace the inactive ones and to meet the increased needs of the Scouts it serves. Reproduce revised lists and distribute them at least annually.
7. So that all counselors may learn their jobs, send them a copy of Guide for Merit Badge Counselors.

Merit Badge List

This printing includes new merit badge subjects available through December 1999.

Instructions: In the spaces provided below, list the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of head counselors for each of the merit badge groups. To the right of each merit badge, enter the number earned during the past year. Keep this list up to date by adding new merit badge titles in blank spaces as they are announced by your council. This list should be revised annually to include new merit badges and changes of counselors.
