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 Joey Scout Section and is held when a youth member first joins the Movement.
This is likely to occur with another Joey Scout who may have nominated to take on a mentoring role, all the while supported and guided by adults. This involves supporting the new Joey Scout's and helping them feel welcome.
In general, the discussion points include:
How the Joey Scout Section operates
What the program looks like in the Joey Scout Section
The Unit Code
The Introduction to Section badge can be worn throughout a Joey Scout's Scouting journey. It is the first of the Introduction to Section badges to be achieved as they transition from Section to Section.
