Merit badge counselors are the key to success in the merit badge plan. They offer their time, experience and knowledge to help guide Scouts in one or more of the merit badge subjects.

The counselor’s responsibility is to:

  • Assist the Scout as he plans the assigned projects and ctivities to meet the merit badge requirements.
  • Coach Scouts through interviews and demonstrations on how to do the required skills of the craft, business, or hobby.
  • Certify the Scout after determining whether he is qualified for the merit badge.
