As you find an idea that suits your needs, I hope that you do not read it to your boys. Take the idea and express it in your own words.
— Veteran Scouter Victor Reinholz - 1958

A Scoutmaster has many opportunities to influence the life of scouts. They hike along the trail, take part in their activities, help them make plans, and engage in manifold relationships as their leader. The Scoutmaster is eager to help the youth grow.

Often the most receptive atmosphere of the day is at the close of the troop meeting or after a happy evening around the campfire when the Scoutmaster shares a minute.

May your influense in the lives of these young men and women be strengthened through the use of these Scoutmaster's Minutes.
