Calling all Merit Badge Counselors, we need your help!!
As some of you already know we are planning to offer a Virtual Merit Badge College (VMBC) this fall as the current pandemic has made hosting a traditional MBC quite problematic. The VMBC Steering Committee has created a venue for offering this VMBC through a series of group and 1-on-1 sessions using Google Classroom. Councils across the US have already started similar programs. Using research and guidance from National Scouts BSA and the Council’s merit badge history we have developed a list of those badges we believe will be appropriate for this learning venue.
As an Occoneechee Council registered Merit Badge Counselor we need your help in providing this program to our Scouts. We have developed a short presentation to tell you about our plans and answer most of your questions. Here\’s the presentation!
If you’re interested in joining this effort or have additional questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
