Virtual Communications Merit Badge

 

WHAT:  The ability to effectively communicate is one of the most important life skills one can develop. Scouting provides a multitude of opportunities to gain these skills, including this Eagle Required merit badge! Across the two merit badge sessions, topics will range from verbal vs. nonverbal methods of communications to career paths in various fields like broadcasting and journalism.

 Meet your CounselorMatthew Goudreau is the Northwest District Executive and Eagle Scout. Matt holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications Studies from the University of Rhode Island. In addition, he has experience working in digital marketing and communications across several platforms. 

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members.

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 15 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements. Scouts must use a device with video to access this class.

The ability to effectively communicate is one of the most important life skills one can develop. Scouting provides a multitude of opportunities to gain these skills, including this Eagle Required merit badge!  

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

WHEN: This class will be held virtually over two sessions:

June 11, 2020 5:00PM-7:00PM EST.

June 18, 2020 5:00PM-7:00PM EST.

Scouts must attend both sessions to complete the offered requirements.

After registering, Scouts will receive a link and login information via email on the day the class is scheduled. Scouts will also receive instructor details that can be used to connect to the counselor on Scoutbook. This assures that completed requirements are easily recorded. 

PREREQUISITES: Scouts must complete Requirement #3 prior to the first session. This requirement instructs each Scout giving a five minute speech on any topic. To fulfill the requirement, each Scout must draft an outline of their speech, write the speech, and be able to give it during the first online session.

Requirements #5 and #7 must be completed in between the first and second sessions. Details will be discussed during the first class.
