Cub Scouts Achievement Pathways - Badges and Awards

Program Essentials - Introduction to Section

Every time a Scout starts a new Section, they’ll engage in activities covering off the basics of how the program works in that age Section. This doesn’t have to be done all at once and might happen over a few weeks.

The Introduction to Section is a discussion covering off the basics of how the program works in the Cub Scout Section and is held when a youth member first joins the Movement or transitions from the Joey Scout Unit.

This is likely to occur with another Cub Scout who may have nominated to take on a mentoring role, all the while supported and guided by adults. This involves supporting the new Cub Scouts and helping them feel welcome.

In general, the discussion points include:

  • How the Cub Scout Section operates
  • What the program looks like in the Cub Scout Section
  • The Unit Code

The Introduction to Section badge can be worn throughout a Cub Scouts Scouting journey. It is the second of the Introduction to Section badges to be achieved as they transition from Section to Section.
