Subject: Peer-to-Peer Recruiting
Peer-to-Peer <http://wrventuring-bsa.org/images/stories/p2p.jpg> Peer-to-peer recruiting is often the most effective kind of recruiting that a Venturing crew or Sea Scout ship can engage in. Peer recruiting is when the Venturers bring their friends because they believe their friends will enjoy the program the crew offers.
Peer recruiting does not happen by magic. It must be nurtured. Unless youth and adult leaders are conscious of the need to do it, it is likely to be forgotten, and will not happen.
The vice president for administration (VPA) is the youth officer responsible for recruiting. The associate advisor for administration is the adult leader identified to help the VPA. However, the president, the advisor, and the entire crew need to be actively involved in peer recruiting efforts.
