AWARDS FOR UNITS WITH HIGH LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION IN RELIGIOUS GROWTH PROGRAMS
Several religions now offer special unit awards for units with high levels of participation in religious growth programs. They include units chartered by the following churches:
- Disciples of Christ
- Roman Catholic
- United Methodist
Generally the prerequisites for the award include a requirement that the unit be sponsored by the faith presenting the award, that a certain number of the leaders be from that church, and that a specified percentage of the Scouts in the unit participate in a religious growth program (not necessarily at the same church or in the same faith). Scouts in units receiving this award are presented with a special patch that may be worn as a temporary patch on the right pocket and with a streamer ribbon for their unit flag. Additional information concerning the requirements for these awards is presented in Part 2 of this book. For example, to find information about the Baptist Unit Award, you would turn to the "Baptist" section of Part 2.
