- Isn't getting a trained unit leader like he should?
- Doesn't like the unit? Or the unit leaders?

A LDS Scout isn't getting what he should..........
What would you do if a LDS Scout:
Often in Scouting we discuss shopping units. Finding a unit that best fits a boy. It seems somewhat more complicated when we discuss the issue that LDS Scouts are assigned their units and don't get to pick or shop. There are some out there that kick against tradition and actually go to community Troops, Teams and Crews. I am actually OK with that. A Scout shouldn't have to suffer because of a poor unit or poor adult leadership. This is a direct reflection of the Charter and the Chartering Organization Rep. If there are not good people picking the BEST people to put into Scouting adult leadership, there continues to be a problem within the unit. I wonder if we "hurt" a boy by telling him to just ride the wave of a poor unit for a long time. We should not jump at every complaint but when there is a clear issue, what is the solution?
If a boy came to you and expressed that their unit wasn't cutting it for him, what would you suggest?
