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 that Section and is held when a youth member first joins the Movement or transitions from the Cub Scout Section.

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

In general, the discussion points include:

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

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