如果童子军的座右铭是 作好准备, 为什么这么多年轻男人问他们的领袖, “我们这周活动晚上干什么?” 也许它 ’ s 因为年轻男人不被教导以身作则如何建模的座右铭.

精心策划和执行侦察和斯密活动,目的是帮助年轻的男孩听到的精神,将使它们对基督和生存期的活动在他的教会的耳语. 计划外, 杂乱无章, 特设的活动导致混乱, 失望, 和侦察和教会参与不感兴趣. 孩子们需要一些东西来期待. 他们需要一个充满令人兴奋的日历, 乐趣, 和有意义的活动的夜晚, 联合的活动, 露营旅行, 球探将举行他们的兴趣比其他世俗的追求的郊游.

年轻的男人都被认为计划, 直接, 控制, 并开展侦察和斯密的活动与他们的影子成人领导和单位侦察委员会的帮助下. 你不能指望你的男孩,以确定有目的的活动,没有你的帮助. 有很多球探资源可用来调查你的朋友们的利益,引导他们朝着有意义的想法, 字符建设活动. 您可以轻松地指导孩子以确定每周的活动, 服务项目, 户外经验, 和会很好玩的天长, 令人振奋的, 和有目的.

我鼓励你举行年度的规划会议,与你的男孩. 至少你应该制定一个季度的日历,显示哪个男生会做每周. 您的日历还可包括祭司的职任仲裁任务和每个仲裁会议,所以你的朋友们来精神上的一课时间表准备讨论福音的原则.

创建生成的期盼和兴奋内一个男孩,当孩子们提前计划活动的好机会. 预先规划还允许高级巡逻队队长让教每个年轻的男人负责,尽自己的职责的分配. 当孩子们计划他们的活动它允许你去见一个小男孩在活动之前指导他在他的领导作用和汇报他之后,讨论吸取的经验教训. 你可以教这个男孩如何设置议程, 概述,并组织一次活动, 和协调设备和必要资源,以使这次活动取得成功. 你可以帮助一个男孩教他策划和组织技能,会帮助他在未来作为一名传教士成为有效的祭司的领导者, 员工, 祭司的职任领导人, 和父亲.

我受够你规划是关键质量侦察程序我郑重见证. 当男孩们提前知道他们会做什么, 他们邀请他们的朋友来参加. 他们来准备好正确的态度, 服装, 和设备. 他们提前感受激动并携带那种兴奋感与他们整个的经验. 他们粘合在一起作为侦察单位,每个男孩履行他的职责. 他们学到, 由经验, 怎样才能更好的祭司持有人.

我恳求你让男孩们带领. 让他们带电荷. 让他们计划, 组织, 委托, 和控制下你微妙的修养自己侦察经验. 让他们互相交流, 互相支持, 并实现美妙的结果,当他们一起作为一个内聚的侦察单元工作. 让他们感受到看到他们规划的努力取得成功成果的喜悦. 当你提前计划你可以站在边线和创造的奇迹,当你看着你的孩子们成为真正的领导者的男孩.

花一点时间来反映

  • 你孜孜以求的目标履行您通过调用有周密计划吗, 非常好想法的侦察和斯密的活动和经验教训?
  • 你是举行年度或季度规划会议与你的男孩,让他们的计划, 组织, 直接, 并控制其侦察和祭司的活动?
  • 你是树立的榜样和教学你的男孩,规划和组织协调能力,他们将需要上他们的任务会成功吗, 在未来就业中, 作为祭司的职任领导人, 和在他们自己家里的墙壁之内?
  • 你坐下来和惊叹如何富有创造力和生产力在你的男孩可以当你允许他们计划他们的球探经验?

 

打开你的倒影变成行动

  • 你会开始做什么, 停止做, 或做得更好,因为你的倒影?
“年轻的男人做不通常变为非活动状态在教会里因为他们有太多重要的事情要做. 没有年轻人目睹了真的为自己的福音书作品将在王国走出他的职责和离开他们撤消. 随着我们的年轻人了解仲裁管理, 他们不只保佑那些法定人数的斯密青年, 但他们正在准备自己未来的父亲以及未来的领导人麦基洗德的祭司法定人数” (斯宾塞 W. 金博, 海军少尉, 5 月 1976, p. 45).

  1. When our troop leader council is properly functioning the boys plan activities and assign themselves duties in carrying out those activities. Boys come because they are excited about the activities and because they have assignments to fulfill. Planning is an integral part of a high quality program.

    But planning needs to function throughout the entire youth program in the ward and stake too, because ward and stake events impact troop planning. The higher the level, the earlier those plans must be made and solidified so that local units can plan around them.

    Our ward held an annual coordinated planning meeting for all youth presidencies at the first of the year so that everyone could be on the same page. The troop, 团队, and crew then planned their own events within the agreed framework. 然而, in the few weeks since the planning meeting, Scouting plans have already been disrupted by well intended ad hoc activities thrown in by stake and ward leaders. I see boys and leaders discouraged by seeing their plans given so little value. Good planning and communication can mitigate problems of this nature.

      斯科特 ·,

      I agree this can be a problem. As a member of our Stake YM Presidency, we are asked to have our calendar in place by October for the next year. Our Stake Presidency does not want changes to occur once that calendar is in place. If new calendar activities are requested, we have to contact the Bishop of each ward to make sure we’re not conflicting with a ward-level activity. We almost never add new activities because of the impact on the wards. I would recommend talking to your Stake Presidency member over YM/YW and relaying your concerns about scheduling. While Stake Leaders can have good intentions, in the end our job as stake leaders is to SUPPORT the wards and their families. We can’t do that by complicating your planning!

    伟大的职位.

    I agree that planning is paramount. One thing that I have noticed is that our PLCs are much more productive when we have an annual planning meeting. Having a monthly theme really helps them frame their ideas and make decisions, rather than having to think with endless possibilities.

    So right now we have monthly themes and campouts planned annually. Then we flesh out the specific activities at our monthly PLC. One challenge we have is the monthly combined activity. It seems like it really interrupts the flow and at times seems a lot less meaningful.

    I met one bishop at scout camp who had done away with combined activities and would only hold them when they met a real need in the youth group. I have to say it made a whole lot of sense to me. I wish our ward did that.

      Both times I was a scoutmaster we also had monthly themes around which the activities and campouts were planned. The monthly themes were the 12 values of the Scout Law. In planning the activities the boys identified merit badges that would teach the value at the same time they were earning the merit badge. The monthly outdoor activity (徒步旅行, 野营, 皮划艇, bicycling, 等。) would also be tied to that value. This made it much easier for the boys to plan their calendar. It also made it easier for the Scouting committee to support the boys by providing the instructors and resources they needed for their activities.

      I would be happy to send you, or anyone else, the matrix the boys put together if you would like to see it. Just send me an email and request thePlanning Activities Tied to Scout Law Valuesmatrix. Just click on my name for my email address.

    We are going to have our first PLC and I have been struggling how to help the boys organize themselves. This would be an answer to my prayers! Thanks for the amazing Blog. 保持好的工作. Brian Ricks (Brianricks1997@yahoo.com)

    I was just reading through some notes from the 2002 Priesthood Leadership Conference at Philmont. Glen L. 步伐, counselor in the general Young Men presidency shared some responses from a survey that asked Aaronic Priesthood boys why they don’t come to Mutual. Here are some of the responses:

    Leaders do not follow through on commitments for planned activities.
    Activities lack meaning and substance.
    Service opportunities need to be of a longer duration rather than just a single event.
    Too many activities arefun-orientedand are often boring compared to what is available elsewhere.
    Leaders are often unprepared and activities are not well-planned.
    Even active parents don’t show much enthusiasm or support for mutual activities.

    We have a tendency to assume boys want fun. That is not true. They want something that is meaningful that is also fun.
