Q: What are the Early Adopter Program requirements?
A: The requirements to participate in the Early Adopter Program are:
1.) A local council decides to participate in the Early Adopter Program.
2.) The council will then reach out to chartered partners of units that are in good standing and have the capacity to participate in order to determine if the chartered partner is interested in opting in to the Early Adopter Program.
3.) Chartered partners and unit leaders confirm interest and agree to use the Family Pack Model, and that they will:
Register a minimum of four girls into a new all-girl den of an existing pack,
(Dens are formed with Cub Scouts in the same grade or required ages for the ranks of Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and first-year Webelos)
Use the current Cub Scouting program and resources,
Uphold membership policies,
Provide input and feedback about their activities and experiences to help improve the formal rollout; this information may also be used in marketing and earned media outreach.
4.) The pack confirms that leaders are trained in their positions.
5.) The pack agrees to develop a program plan to ensure that participants can accomplish all rank requirements by May 31, 2018.
