A couple of hints
  • Go to "Tools" (Keystroke command "Alt-T" if you do not see the menu)
  • Select "Compatibility View Settings"
  • Check "Display all websites in compatibility view"

FYI:       During the first couple of months each year the online advancement and tour plan systems do not work until your recharter materials are entered back into the computers.  Recharter requires staff review of all electronic materials and usually takes 4-6 weeks to complete.  We apologize for the inconvenience, it is a part of the ScoutNet system from BSA National and outside of the control of the local council office.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Great Alaska Council is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
"As part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen the protection of youth in our programs, the designation of parents of youth members in traditional programs as ScoutParents will end effective July 1. BSA literature, forms, and processes are being revised to match this change in program.

Councils should encourage current ScoutParents to now officially register as dues-paying adult volunteers or leaders if they are not already so registered.

To help facilitate this, the unit Scouter Reserve position (91U) has been created for supportive adults who have no immediate specific leadership role. Like all registered BSA adult positions, this new role will require a criminal background check and the completion of Youth Protection training.

The position of unit ScoutParent coordinator (PC) will remain a registered position with the name changed to parent coordinator."
