Virtual Personal Management  Merit Badge

 

What:  Success in school, sports and life depends on appropriate training, planning and management.  Personal Management is an Eagle-required Merit Badge and often considered one of the more difficult Merit Badges.  It is designed to work on time (requirements 1, 2 and 3), money (requirements 4, 5, 6 and 7) and project management (requirements 8, 9 and 10) and is a good preparation for Scouts thinking about planning their own Eagle projects. 

 Meet your Counselor - Kevin Beagan is a former Scoutmaster from Troop 25, Attleboro and the proud father of three Eagle Scouts.  In the twelve years that he was active with Troop 25, he coordinated many Merit Badge classes, including Personal Management and worked with many Scouts who attained the rank of Eagle Scout.  Although his last son graduated from Scouting last year, he continues to conduct Merit Badge classes for Narragansett Council.  Outside Scouting, Mr. Beagan is a Deputy Commissioner of Insurance and has been regulating insurance company operations in Massachusetts for 25 years.  Having also been a soccer coach for over 15 years and a religious education teacher for 20 years, he is continuing to learn from those he is teaching.

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members.

The class is intended for high-school age Scouts.

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.

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 three sessions:

June 8, 2020 7:00PM-9:00PM 

June 15, 2020 7:00PM-9:00PM

June 22, 2020 7:00PM-9:00PM

Scouts must attend all three sessions to complete the offered requirements.

After registering, Scouts will receive a link and login information via email 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:  For Merit Badge requirement #2, a Scout needs to complete 90 days of keeping track of personal expenses. If a Scout has completed before class, he or she is to present worksheet, signed by a parent, showing day-by-day tracking of expenses.  Otherwise, worksheet will need to be completed and Merit Badge earned after the Personal Management Merit Badge classes are done.

Suggested supplies/prep-work for students:
