Almost true. The thing you MUST watch out for here is two deep
leadership and youth protection. A JASM is still a youth when it comes
to these points. Otherwise, you are correct. My troop has two JASMs
right now. One works with the Troop Guide and the new scouts. The
other works with the Troop Scribe on record-keeping. The first is a
job that was formerly done by an ASM. The second is a job that has
been done by an ASM or a committee member.
