May 2019 – Bullying

ScoutCast - Fri, 04/26/2019 - 05:01

Talking about bullying doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. You just have to shine a light on it. We get a lot of questions regarding how to handle bullying in a Scouting context, so we thought this might be a good time to talk to Cody Solesbee, a doctoral student in the School of Psychology at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. He’s a researcher for the Nebraska Bullying Prevention and Intervention Initiative, which has a goal of addressing the personal, social, and cultural factors that underlie bullying behaviors in order to advance solutions to promote healthy relationships within families, schools, communities, and out-of-school organizations like Scouting.

April 2019 – Scouts with Special Needs

ScoutCast - Thu, 03/28/2019 - 13:00

Last December there was a post on the Bryan on Scouting blog about Benjamin Waggoner, a Scout who has spina bifida and is Eagle Scout No. 527 in Troop 890 in Dallas, Texas. So, we invited Benjamin and his dad, Chip Waggoner, to chat with us about Scouts with special needs from the perspectives of a Scout and a parent.

If you’re interested, our little sibling, CubCast, addresses this same topic from a leader’s point of view. And even if you don’t have any special needs youth in your troop or crew, you’re sure to find this episode both enlightening and inspiring!

Host Bryan Wendell shares his own experience with advancement in Scouting.
