Trying to put a thousand skills
into every troop's backpack

  About Us

The Global Troop Resource is dedicated to helping troops that need resources. We are a source of curated videos, links to valuable resources, plus we produce videos specifically for Parents and Leaders to help their Scouts. We make it possible for you to watch experts and guest speakers share their secrets, experts explain how to select the best gear and merit badge counselors discuss the tips & tricks that will make your Scouting experience easier and so much more!

The fact that you've read this far this tells me you are intrigued.  That’s great!  The Scout Leaders that are putting this project together are resourceful and are so committed to this project that, like you, they are making it all happen out of their own pockets.

The ½ Hour Show.
The Global Troop Resource Show aired on the Comcast and FIOS public access channels for three years and the archive is available through the Troop Resource YouTube Channel.

New Leader and New Parent Information
We are in the process of putting together a simple-to-follow guide for new leaders and parents of new scouts. As a newbie, it's sometimes hard to know where you fit in and what to do next. If you have questions, you can ask us or join a number of the forums we support. One good Facebook forum is https://www.facebook.com/groups/Talk.about.Scouting/. This is a "managed group," so you have to request to join.


We Help Growing and Struggling Troops

Our primary goal is to help troops that want to grow and experience new things as they struggle to keep their Scouts on track and having fun. If you would like to volunteer to help us reach this goal, there are many young people who will be eternally grateful. Most volunteer work can be done from any location. Our bigest need at the moment is marketing this website.

Our Visionary "Long-Term Goal"
Our dream started in 2015 with a couple of Scout-led videos; then a pod-cast and for three years now we produced 10 shows a year where Leaders get to interact with the experts. We'd like you to be a part of that, too.

Where are We Located?
The Global Troop Resource is based out of Springfield, Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia), yet our information reaches out across America, and the world. You can reach back to us by sending an email to Info@TroopResource.org.
