Scott Begin has called our attention to Alpha Phi Omega and lists
a number of good projects that they perform at his chapter.
In addition to their other activities/projects, the chapter here at the
University of Iowa conducts an annual Merit Badge University. This is
two consecutive Saturdays, usually in March. Last year over 300 Scouts
participated in about 10 merit badges (one mb per Scout). They have
done this for the past 4 years and it is getting bigger and BETTER (not
always the same!) each year.
As a former Scoutmaster, Unit Commissioner, District Advancement Chair
man, and now Council Advancement Chairman, I can attest to the boost
this gives to the unit programs.
If anyone would like more information, I will either put you in contact
with persons more directly involved, or send more detailed information.
