Roundtable Staff Objectives

Roundtables are a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at all levels. The objective of roundtables is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. The roundtable commissioner and staff demonstrate elements of a model meeting that leaders may use as a pattern for their own meetings. The roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Webelos and Boy Scouts.

Get Smart About Drugs

Red Ribbon Week Patch Initiative


The mission of the Red Ribbon Week Patch is designed to provide Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts the ability to earn a patch from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) by for performing anti-drug activities in commemoration of Red Ribbon Week. Furthermore, this initiative seeks to empower young people to create, embrace, and strengthen their drug free beliefs. DEA aims to award a Red Ribbon Week Patch and Certificate of Participation to the first 20,000 qualifying Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.


The Red Ribbon Week Patch is an unfunded initiative. The coordination of this initiative is led by DEA. The agency has dedicated in-kind resources to include staff, website development, website hosting, meeting coordination, graphic design, and other resources.

Only the first qualifying 20,000 Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts will be awarded a patch.
