Last month, we discovered that one of the keys to keeping boys in the Cub Scouting program is advancement. Both Amy and Aaron know first-hand that this can sometimes be a daunting task, so we invited Scoutbook inventor, Shawn Jackson, to the show to talk with us about the importance of advancement and how the Scoutbook app may be the perfect solution for keeping up with everyone’s achievements and awards.

Pat Wellen, manager of the Research and Strategy Team at the National Service Center, tells us how figuring out the right strategy to ask for parent participation specifically depends on what generation they’re from. It’s really a fascinating discussion, so join us, won’t you?
