MERIT BADGE COLLEGE - COMMUNCATIONS (VIRTUAL)

 

WHAT:  Scouts learn about oral, written, visual, and digital methods of sharing information while working on the Communication merit badge. They share stories and information, participate in an interview, attend a public meeting, and plan a Court of Honor or campfire program. They also explore careers in the field of communication.

 MEET YOUR COUNSELOR - Kevin Beagan is a former Scoutmaster from Troop 25 Attleboro. He has taught the Communications Merit Badge for a number of years. He has worked for over 24 years within the Massachusetts Division of Insurance where he coordinates presentations and the development of communication materials to help consumers make more informed choices about insurance benefits. 

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members.

Narragansett Council Scouts and Adventure Card holders should select the ‘In-Council/Adventure Card’ option. All other scouts will select ‘Out of Council/Non-Adventure Card’

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 20 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements. Scouts must use a device with video to access this class.

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

WHEN: This class will be held virtually over 2 sessions:

January 7, 2021 - 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM EST

January 14, 2021 - 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM EST

All registered scouts will be mailed an exclusive 2021 Merit Badge College patch. You will have the opportunity to purchase additional patches at checkout.

After registering, login instructions will be sent the day prior of scheduled class to the email of whom created the registration. Council staff will connect on behalf of the counselor and provide credit for completed requirements. A valid BSA ID number is required. This assures that completed requirements are easily recorded.
