Have you invited a friend neighbor, relative, or classmate to join Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, or Venturing? If so, you might be eligible to wear the Recruiter Strip.


Normally this strip is awarded the first time a youth successfully recruits another youth into the program. It is usually only awarded once while a Cub Scout, another time while a member of Scouts BSA, and another as a Venturer.

This patch is earned by youth only.

Specific procedures for earning the Recruiter Strip are set by the unit. No application or form is needed.

How to Get It

The patch is available online or at your local Scout Shop. The Recruiter Strip is worn below the right pocket on the official uniform.
