A variety of volunteer staff members are needed to make this event a success.
Adults are needed to set up the facilities before the fair starts, handle registration, act as "roamers" to look out for issues that need to be resolved, assist the merit badge counselors, and to help clean-up after the event is over. Volunteers who work directly with the youth must have current Youth Protection Training. YPT can be taken at www.myScouting.org.
Merit badge counselors and adults who work with youth must have current Youth Protection Training and also be registered with the council as a merit badge counselor. Participants will be expected to complete all the requirements as indicated by the Boy Scouts of America. Merit badge counselors should wear their field uniform, if possible.
