Second Class Rank Requirement 9a

Posted on 20 March 2016

The Boy Scouts of America has the following 2nd class requirement:

9a. Participate in a school, community, or troop program on the dangers of using drugs, alcohol, and tobacco and other practices that could be harmful to your health. Discuss your participation in the program with your family, and explain the dangers of substance addictions.

To meet this awareness requirement for Troop 24, each scout will watch with their parent the following list of specific videos and public service announcements on the Foundation for a Drug-Free World website:

In the “Real People – Real Stories” section:

  • The Truth About Drugs
  • The Truth About Marijuana
  • The Truth About Alcohol
  • The Final Word

In the “They Said/They LiedTV Public Service Announcements section:

  • Popular
  • Just Once
  • They Said
  • The Truth About Drugs

Parents are recommended to watch these ahead of time and decide if they are comfortable exposing and discussing these materials. It is a curriculum rated for ages 11 and up. Scouts should not watch these videos alone, and parents should be there to discuss and answer questions.

THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

For 100 years, The Boy Scouts of America has helped boys develop into honorable men, by building character, fostering citizenship, and promoting fitness all while having fun. Boy Scouting is available to boys that have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old.

JOINING TROOP 24

We normally meet Sunday evenings from 6:30 until 8:00 at St. Patrick's Church in Groveland. There are always plenty of adult leaders present for you to ask questions, gather information and learn about us.

SACRED HEARTS PARISH

Troop 24 has been part of the Sacred Hearts Parish Community for over 75 years. We are smaller than the average Boy Scout troop which gives us the flexibility to help the scouts develop their own unique plan to improve their skills, complete achievements and advance at a pace that is comfortable for them.
