What is a Unit Commissioner?

A Unit Commissioner is a volunteer with some background in Scouting and the ability to empathize with and understand the problems unit leaders face when trying to operate Scouting�s programs.  A Unit Commissioner is your friend and a leader whose passionate overriding mission in Scouting is to help units succeed.  More specifically, units can call on their Unit Commissioner for help, advice and expertise.

  • Commissioners have been involved with the Scouting program, for some time and have experience.
  • You and those in your unit may be new to Scouting.  You are full of enthusiasm, and eager to learn.
  • Perhaps you are fumbling along in the dark, you need some training, but don�t know here to find it.  A Commissioner helps.
  • You may suspect there are resources. You don�t know what they are.  A Commissioner helps.
  • Maybe you have heard about Program Helps or seen some different suggestion pages in your Scouting magazine, but need the guidance to know when to use them.  A Commissioner helps.
