As the Scoutmaster, I must determine who is allowed to sign off
on advancement requirements. When it comes to troop leadership
requirements, I reserve that to myself alone. After the last troop
election, I give each every junior leader two copies of a
performance contract for their job. One they sign and return and the
other copy they keep. I tell them that this is how we will determine
at the end of their term if they "actively" served this position or not.
If they fulfill the contract then they can count it towards the
leadership advancement requirement.
I also gave each junior leader a copy of the performance contract
for the jobs that they supervise so they can see what is expected
of the leaders who report to them.
This is new for me. It's an experiment. It's too early to tell how it
will work. But my goal was to avoid giving credit for leadership
to a Scout who did nothing in their position. It's about time for a
mid-term counseling/report card on all of the contracts.
