NE Georgia Council MB Counselor Application Procedures
 The BSA and Troop 506 always have need for more merit badge counselors. If you have a favorite hobby, interest or skill set please consider becoming a Merit Badge counselor. You will make a positive difference in the lives of boy scouts.


Refer to the following guidance to become a new MB counselor or, if already qualified and current, to add/subtract a MB.

ADULT LEADER APPLICATION: Required for all first-time MB counselors--even if already a current adult leader.  Not required if you are an existing MB counselor and wish to add or subtract MB subjects, or you no longer wish to serve as a MB counselor.

 *This form is not available as a "fillable" pdf file. It must be completed by hand.

 * Ensure that you have signed twice! Sign both the Disclosure/Authorization form and the Adult Application itself.

Merit Badge Counselor Form: This may be manually filled out or completed as a "fillable" pdf file on your computer. It can even be digitally signed.

New MB Counselor applicants should provide the completed Adult Leader Application, copy of Youth Protection certificate, and MB Counselor Form to the Committee Chair, who will submit the package to the NEGA Council.

Existing MB Counselors seeking to add/subtract subjects to their profile need only fill out the MB Counselor Form and submit it to the Council. Turnaround time is usually just a day or two. Please contact our troop Advancement Chair for any questions.

 The following is much more detailed guidance from the NE Georgia Council.
