Support Visit Log

Support Visit Log
September 2014
In-Person Support Goal
Each Scouter receives the personal face-toface support required for him/her to thrive and
deliver consistently high quality programs.
In-Person Support
Every section and group receives
three support visits annually
What is the Support
Visit Log?
This tool will assist with our Volunteer Support
Strategy by logging support visits to
Groups/Sections and to monitor tasks.
Keeping your Support Visits logged in one
location will be a great Support Team
collaboration & strategic planning tool.
Support Visit Log = SVL
Why Log Support Visits?
• If In-Person Support is a goal, then we need
to measure how we are doing.
• We can identify “holes” in support. Which
groups are not receiving support visits?
When was the last time that a group received
a visit?
• This log helps us work as a team, to easily
communicate issues and concerns
observed by support scouters.
Who is the SVL for?

complete Group/Section Support Visits
Council Key3
