Just curious, but does anyone know how long it takes Merit Badge Counselor Applications to go through and be approved?
I turned in an application with my son’s troop leadership to be sent in to the district in November, and I just don’t know how or when I might hear that I’ve been approved. (I understand with the holidays and recharter, this probably isn’t the fastest time of year - so I’m not complaining, just curious).
I am a high school teacher, and there are a number of scouts in my son’s troop that also attend my school/live in my neighborhood that are looking for counselors for badges that I’m qualified to help with - and that there are no other counselors in district for - and the kids are getting antsy.
Will I get a letter in the mail? An email? Will my status as a merit badge counselor just magically show up on my Scoutbook profile?
