The Chartered Partner Concept
The Boy Scouts of America identifies organizations that share its values and invites them to become chartered partners. The local Boy Scout council grants a charter to the partner based on the partner’s agreeing to provide a program based on the Scout Oath and Law.
The chartered partner provides;
- Meeting location
- Adult leadership.
The council provides:
- Professional and volunteer support
- Camps and activities
The Chartered-Organization Representive (COR) - is the direct contact between the pack and the chartered organization. This individual is also the organization's contact with the district committee and the local council. The chartered organization representative may become a member of the district committee and is a voting member of the council. If the chartered organization has more than one unit, one representative serves them all.
Because the COR is so important, the Great Salt Lake Council has developed COR Training. Click here to take the training.
