In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America, the New-Unit Task Force announces the Founderís Bar recognition. This recognition is intended to emphasize the importance and pride of forming and nurturing a new Scouting unit.
The Founderís Bar is worn by all youth and adults whose names are on a new-unit charter or who officially join the new unit before the unit recharters for the first time.
This recognition is not just for new units - original charter members of units created prior to 2010 can also wear this patch, as long as the unit is still in operation and the person is still a member.
Though the bar looks similar to an Interpreter's Strip, it is worn on the left sleeve below the unit numerals.
The patch, pocket certificate, and full-size certificate are available at local scout shops.
