Personal Management Merit Badge

Posted on Jun 13 2016 - 1:33pm
Personal Management Merit Badge
 
Mr. Santowski is a merit badge counselor for the Personal Management merit badge and is offering to have Scouts sign up for this merit badge.  One of the key requirements for the Personal Management merit badge is 13 weeks of tracking income, expenses and savings against a prepared budget.  As many Scouts earn money during the summer through various jobs, he is requesting that Scouts who are interested in this MB sign up by sending him an email with your contact information (name, email address and phone number) so they can take advantage of this time frame.  Once the signup is complete, he will send out information to the group regarding this budget tracking requirement.  The balance of the requirements will be covered during a merit badge meeting at the beginning of the new Troop year (September, most likely).
 
Note:  This is open for up to 10 scouts and is on a first come first serve basis. 
 
Please email Mr. Santowski at rsantowski@aol.com if you wish to sign up.
