A youth member of the BSA between the ages of 18 and 21 can be
registered in a number of youth or adult positions:
He can be registered as a member of an Explorer Post or Ship, either
in the college town where he will be living in or in his home town.
Have him to please check with the Dean of Students, Division of
Student Life, or Division of Student Organizations to find out if
there's an Explorer Post or Ship there at the college. Also have him
to check with the local Council of the Council in which the college is
(the position previously known as "college Scouter (reserve)" is no
more...although there are still some Councils that have registered
youth in that manner...don't do it, because it's more trouble than the
"ease" in registering this way).
He can be registered in his Troop as an Assistant Scoutmaster until he
He can be registered in some other Troop (either home or away) as an
Assistant Scoutmaster. He can also be registered in a Cub Scout Pack
as an Assistant Den Leader.
Everything else requires him to be at least 21 years of age (that's
including Associate/Assistant Advisors of Exploring units).
