Our Council Exploring Professional position is relatively new, and has
bounced back and forth between a couple of people. Both Executives have
tried to work through the EOA to support Exploring programs- but it appears
that support from the units is relatively weak. We have, in our Post, tried
to attend every meeting and activity sponsored by the EOA- and have more than
once found ourselves to be the ONLY unit in attendance- out of some
We ourselves are chronically short of youth leadership and adult support, and
have been unable to furnish any prospective officers to the EOA. The youth
strongest in leadership are so busy with school, sports, etc. that they have
little time to offer to the program. The parents seem largely disinterested
(kids aren't cute anymore?).
The bottom line is an uphill battle at the Council level to furnish support.
