Making a difference
What is the H. Roe Bartle Training Award?
This award recognizes those volunteer and professional Scouters who have earned the CNP and applied that training significantly to their volunteer or professional work with the Boy Scouts of America.
The award aims to promote the career path of professional Scouting and recognize the need for professional preparation in nonprofit organization management and leadership via higher education. It also promotes the Alliance to Scouting’s youth to increase enrollment in affiliated campus programs, which in turn would enlarge the pool of CNP’s to fill vacancies as District Executives.
Finally, the award amplifies the Alliance to Scouting’s adult volunteers who might consider a mid-career career change from the private or public sectors to professional Scouting (i.e., sector-switching) on their own volition or out of necessity, because of the economy and loss of employment, which in turn would also enlarge the pool of Alliance certified alumni to fill vacancies as District Executives through post-baccalaureate certification processes.
The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance H. Roe Bartle Training Award is one of a number of paths to the BSA Community Organization Award. Awardees are entitled to wear the gold and purple square knot on their BSA Scouter’s uniform. A certificate and device (small Nonprofit Leadership Alliance logo pin) will be awarded by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance upon completion of the award. The device should be pinned in the center of the BSA Community Organization Award square knot. The award recipient will be responsible for taking their Nonprofit Leadership Alliance H. Roe Bartle Training Award Certificate to their local Scout Shop as evidence, so that they may purchase the BSA Community Organization square knot award.
The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance H. Roe Bartle Training Award can be presented simultaneously with the CNP certification during or near commencement exercises at a student’s college or university; or at the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Management/Leadership Institute (AMI); or at an appropriate Scouting venue.
To apply for the award, please contact the Alliance, CNPcredential@nla1.org.
