Don mentioned seeing this at an OA event:
"Stand beside them - and guide them onward"
To me, this is what sets OA apart from Troops or Pack (regarding Adult
involvement). In OA, Adults are only advisors. OA is a youth led (note - not
youth run) organization. That may sound like a subtle difference. To me, it
is all the difference in the world.
I find it interesting, by the way, that Crews (and Ships) are structured
more like an OA Chapter or Lodge than a Troop (or Pack).
