Whether it is a school, church, or fraternal organization, we’re sure your chartered organization is planning some kind of event or two for the holidays. Maybe it’s a food or clothing drive or maybe it’s a spaghetti dinner fundraiser. Whatever is it, your Cub Scout pack can probably help. Cub Scout program trainer Linda Goff of Oakridge, Tennessee, joins us for an in-depth discussion on not only how your Cub Scouts can help, but, more importantly, why they should and the benefits to all involved.

Simply stated, Journey to Excellence is the BSA’s council performance recognition program that measures and rewards the success for our units, districts, and councils. But, seriously, what does that mean? What does that entail? Perhaps you’re already performing at the Gold level and wonder why you need to listen to this episode. Because Kevin Steffy, Director of Field Service with the Longhorn Council in Ft. Worth, Texas and JTE expert, clarifies it all (and even shares the changes coming in 2014) to make sure you’re reaping all the benefits of a great Scouting experience as you travel on this journey.

Not only will you be surprised by the answer (because it’s so much more than you think), but you’ll wonder why you didn’t get a den chief sooner.

Spoiler alert: It’s not just about raising money.
