A. Establish Scouting Units within Jain Centers, Societies and Communitites. Why? To affirm all you do everyday with the strength of structure from the Scouting Program and receive additional recognition for your studies, sports and spirituality. Moreover with 25 or more sponsored Scouting Units, JAINA may directly permit wearing of the Universal Religious Awards Knot without having to notify the BSA of the "Individual Award".
B. JAINA Interview Scout Project: which captures how Jain principles provide the framework for the successes in life of Jain's throughout the world. The idea is to preserve in a video formatted record, the contributions by practicing Jain's--Especially for the express sake of cataloguing Jain principles & values in action, for the youth to feel appropriately confident and affirmed with an answer to the following question:
" How has practicing a single Jain principle led to your successes in life?"
This collection of interviews would then be referenced into a "Video Library" sharing the strengths of being Jain.
C. Additional Ideas:
1. Scouts may wish to contact JAINA mentors through the MENTORSHIP program
2. Scouts may wish to join on-going JAINA PROJECTS to satisfy the community service requirements
3. Create an interactive map with scoll across features identifying those Jain Centers/Societies with:
- a Scouting Charter
- when established
- total number of Scouts
- number of Eagles
