I'm not willing to be detailed about why the adult could not be
registered. Suffice it to say that he has not committed any crimes, is
not suspected of being a risk to the boys, and has a track record of
valued involvement in youth programs. It may be that he just does not
want to be registered. For the sake of the question I asked, let's assume
nothing is sinister here and tell me theoretically what such a person can
or cannot do.
Perhaps I should ask specific questions. Some have been partially answered.
Opinions are welcome, but cited policy would be preferred.
Can he fill committee positions?
Can he serve on a Board of Review?
Can he chair a Board of Review?
Can he sign requirements in handbook?
Can he counsel a merit badge?
Can he drive for outdoor activities?
Can he participate in day outdoor activities?
Can he participate in overnight outdoor activities?
Can he teach skills in troop meetings?
