Each Area in White Pine Council has an assortment of Public Relations material and resources which can be booked though each Area Commissioner. It generally consists of flyers, posters, table top displays, an outdoor banner, table skirt and other useful items for local promotions either indoors or out. These PR kits are an excellent way to increase Scouting visibility during community events, festivals and fairs.
There are a number of school boards and individual schools that will not allow organizations to advertise with flyers. In many cases individual schools will accept electronic copies from Scouts. You could check with either the school office or parent council and then make a submission. Below is a generic ad which can be used or modified (click for MS Word version)

Kids in Scouts have fun adventures discovering new things
and experiences they wouldn’t discover elsewhere. Along the
way, they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded
individuals, better prepared for success in the world.
For over 100,000 members nationwide representing every faith and
culture, Scouts is the start of something great.
Scouting is a family organization. We encourage parents to join
the fun. To find out how you can be a leader or assist the Group
administratively please visit: www.myscouts.ca/ca/netforum_locator/search

One of the most proven successful ways to have more youth and adults explore the benefits of Scouting is to host a Bring-a-Friend Event. The objective of a Bring-a-Friend Event is to grow membership by using existing Scouting members as ambassadors. A Bring-a-Friend Event is exactly what the name eludes to – a special event to which Scouting youth invite one or more friends. The event is designed to highlight activities and experiences unique to Scouting. For Scouting youth, it’s an opportunity to “show off” how cool Scouting can be. For their “friends”, it is an opportunity to try Scouting. For the group, it provides an opportunity to increase the number of youth in their sections and to connect with more parents and potential leaders. For more information or to order get Bring A Friend postcards, contact your Area Support Manager.
