Did your unit achieve 100% Boys' Life after re-chartering? If not, that is something that should be a top priority in 2011. Achieving 100% puts your unit one step closer to being a Quality Unit. When signing up new boys there should only be one fee which includes the price of registration and Boys' Life.
Here are just a few of the benefits of Boys' Life for Scouts and families:
Longer Tenure - Subscribers stay in Scouting an average of two and a half times longer than non-subscribers.
Advancement - The advancement rate for Boys' Life subscribers is more than twice that of non-subscribers.
Family Support - As families read Boy's Life with their children they become more supportive of Scouting.
Reading Capabilities - Studies have shown Boy's Life magazine readers tend to have better and stronger reading capabilities compared with those who do not receive the magazine.
