Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the status in the Order of assistant Scoutmasters and assistant Varsity Scout Coaches who are under age 21?
Young adults ages 18 through 20 are considered youth members of the Order of the Arrow. Because of this, assistant Scoutmasters and assistant Varsity Scout Coaches who are 18, 19 or 20 years old and who meet the youth eligibility requirements should be included on election ballots whenever an election is held in a troop or team, and these young adults should be allowed to participate in the Guide to Unit Elections Page 4 of 8 Order of the Arrow election in the same manner as youth members under age 18. Once inducted, these young adults may participate fully in the Order of the Arrow as youth members, until their 21st birthday.

In summary: Anyone under the age of 21 is considered youth and must be elected through the ballot process. They cannot be nominated and must be listed on the election report with all other youth.
