This is completely incorrect! All Assistant Leader positions for Cubs and
Scouts can be filled by "youth" aged 18-20. We did just such a thing with
one of our Eagle Scouts recently. The month before he turned 18 we had him
fill out an adult leader application for ASM for the Troop. We got all the
needed signatures from CC and CR and turned it in to Council. At the next
Troop meeting after he had actually turned 18, we presented him with his
ASM patch as part of his Troop "graduation". For purposes of YPP when
working with Cubs or Scouts, he is one of the adults. If he were dual
registered with an Explorer Post, he would be classified as a youth when
participating in Explorer or OA activities.
Talk to one of your commisioners or your District Exec if you need
additonal information or the rules in "black and white".
