District Transitional Troop Needs Assessment

The Lone Star District is currently seeking your input to determine if there is a need for a Transitional Troop in our area. Scouts BSA is committed to serving all youth regardless of physical or mental capabilities or impairments. A Transitional Troop would provide additional support to Scouts who may not be ready to move directly into a traditional Scouting unit. Examples of Scouts who may benefit from a Transitional Troop include 1) Scouts crossing over from Cub Scouts who may not be ready to move directly into a traditional unit, and 2) Scouts with disabilities who may not be ready to move directly into a traditional unit.
