Online Registration is now Live for all units in the New Birth of Freedom Council! When potential Scouting families find your unit using BeAScout.org they will have the availability to complete an online registration and join your unit right away. (currently, this feature is only available for youth registrations) Make sure that your unit’s BeAScout.org pin is active and correct.
Once a lead has been submitted, your key unit leaders will receive notification and will be able to digital sign/approve a youth application. Applications paid with by a credit card will be processed as soon as the approval is complete and the Scouts will appear on your roster immediately. Scouts can pay with check or cash but your unit will still need to turn that payment in with a printed voucher into a Council Service Center. Remember, if your unit charges dues, you are unable to collect them through this system. When you update your BeAScout.org pin, you will be able to note those costs so that families know there may be additional fees included with registration.
Units can also use this process to invite youth to apply to your unit. Instructions on how to do so are included in the Online Registration Guidebook below.
