    communication_lgTo earn a communication badge, they scout can select from a list of requirements.  These scouts choose to attend a public meeting (city council, school board, debate) where several points of view are given on a single issue. Practice active listening skills and take careful notes of each point of view. Then the scouts had to prepare an objective report that includes all points of view that were expressed, and share this with your counselor. Communication focuses on how people use messages to generate meanings within and across various contexts, cultures, channels, and media. The field of communication promotes the effective and ethical practice of human communication.

    This badge is one of the many badges the scout must earn before earning Eagle Rank.

    After the meeting was over, Justin had an opportunity to speak to the members of Parsippany-Troy Hills Council and ask questions regarding the issues that were discussed during the meeting.

    For over 60 Years Troop 72 has served the youth of the general Parsippany area, including Boonton, Denville, Parsippany, and Morris Plains. Boys from ages 11 to 18 are invited to join. For more information, click here.
