Does helping fellow Scouts count for service requirements?

When someone needs help, Scouts are there to jump in and serve. That’s what Scouts do, even when it’s their fellow Scouts who are in need.

Scoutbook integration is here

We’re happy to announce that we’ve released Scoutbook integration with Scout Manager. This is a seamless integration between Scout Manager and Scoutbook allowing your awards Coordinators to push awards back into the SB ecosystem with just a few button clicks.
