CubCast - Thu, 01/01/2015 - 4:00am
Have you ever found yourself asking, “What does Scouting mean by ‘building character’?” Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, is conducting a study on how the Cub Scouting program instills kids with positive characteristics that may differ from other youth programs. This study is seeking to understand the impact that Scouting has on the development of character in the Cradle of Liberty Council in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dan Warren, a doctoral student of child study and human development at Tufts University and one of the researchers on that study, joins us for an enlightening discussion. Join us, won’t you?

If you’ve never listened to a CubCast before, this is the one you don’t want to miss! There’s been a change to the IRS compliance environment with regard to nonprofit fundraising efforts. What does this mean for popcorn and camp card sales? How will this affect fundraising in your den or pack? Steve McGowan, general counsel for the Boy Scouts of America, helps us make sense of all the fundraising rules and regulations. (Thanks, Steve!)

We’ll be honest: This Cubcast is a little longer than previous ones, but that’s because the 15 minutes are chock full of new and retro activities that we know your dens and packs will love! Volunteer extraordinaire Linda Vaughn, who sits on the Cub Adventure Committee and is tasked with re-writing the den leader guides, joins us for this spirited discussion.
