Merit Badge Counselor Registration

Q:  Why does BSA policy require scouts to talk to their unit leader and get a signed "blue card" to work on a merit badge?

A:  Scouts should only be working with registered, trained, adults with YPT!  It is up to the unit leader to make sure a MBC has met those requirements by confirming the MBC is registered.

To register as a Monticello District merit badge counselor (MBC), complete the following:

  1. Complete an adult application even if you have already completed an application for another volunteer role in BSA  http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-501.pdf  NO FEE!

  2. Complete a MBC application http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34405.pdf

  3. Have current YPT (send a copy of your YPT certificate with your application)

  4. Complete the online MBC training https://my.scouting.org/ and send a copy of your training certificate.

  1. Return the completed forms to the Monticello District Advancement Chair Susan Randall Murphy at Roundtable or email susan@cvillemurphy.com
