Crew and Troop linkage, advantages

After the age of 13 and graduated grade 8, youths may dual register with both a troop and a crew at no additional expense. A troop could create a crew to expose their older youth to additional advancement, training and other recognition possibilities as well as expanded program opportunities. A crew could supply a leadership corps/senior patrol to a troop and crew members could work on scout badges and awards including Eagle. There are many advantages to be had by having a crew with a direct relationship with a troop including overlapping meetings and some joint events/activities and even sharing committee members. It is also a great opportunity to bring older youth into both the Venturing and Scout program. Something to think about.
