2024 Unit Health Metrics

on Great Trail Units served by the Council Commissioner Service Team, our District, and Unit Commissioners.

Page updated: June 4,  2024

Why Unit Health Metrics?

What makes a healthy unit? Why do we care? If we can't measure it we can not know when we are making progress towards having stronger units. Having positive scores on the various unit metrics will increase the chances of scouting in each unit having the best experience possible while we assure the delivery of the Scouting program in a consistent way across units. The National Commissioner Service Team has identified a few metrics, and we will be following a few more with the goal of making our units as strong and as healthy as possible. 

Our focus for now is only on Packs and Troops
