Recruiting is the single most important requirement for a Sea Scout. Several advancement requirements call for making different presentations on Sea Scouts. However, what should you include in a presentation about Sea Scouts?
It is important to know your audience for any presentation. A Boy Scout Troop may be more interested in the background of Sea Scouts, advancement ranks and Scouting opportunities if they joined. A civics group might be more interested in showing how youth benefit from being a Sea Scout. A charter partner (sponsor) may want to see past activities of a Sea Scout Ship on a quarterly basis as a way to promote the Ship in the community.
When making a recruiting presentation, consider the following topics to include:
Highlight Fun Activities
Showcase Action, such as sailing, competitive events or working on an engine
A call to action, such as an invitation to an upcoming event
