Hallway Traffic Coordinators

Contact 'MeritBadgeCollege@gmail.com' to volunteer.

There are 4 major intersections in the halls of FRCC that the scouts could use a little help with directions (Remember, they are males, they don't ask for directions, it's a 'guy' thing!). The east/west hallway is very long and many of the scouts can't believe they have to walk "all the way down there?" to get to class. Therefore, it helps to have an adult at the intersection, directing the participants 'left / right / straight ahead' to their respective classroom.

At each major intersection, there is a sandwich board with nearby classes listed and a directional arrow. Although most of the scouts will read it and find their own way, a confirmation from you that they are going the right direction helps them get there on time. You'll also answer the ageless question "Where's the closest bathroom?".
