The rules for this are found in Rules and Regulations; Charter and Bylaws of
National, as well as all training manuals, and most publications for leaders.
Upon reaching the age of 18, a boy can NO LONGER be registered as as Scout. He
must be registered as an adult. He may NOT be registered in any position other
than Asst. Scoutmaster until he turns 21. The unit committee members must be
21 or older.
Therefore, the 18 yr old has only one choice. If he registers with your troop
he must register as an Asst. Scoutmaster until the age of 21.
Hope this clears it up.
