In Baden-Powell's day, those in the military were expected to pay their own way back to England at the end of their service. To economize, soldiers nearing completion of their duties would seek assignments at posts increasingly close to home—a process known as "working your ticket."
The Wood Badge ticket allows each participant to create a personal vision based on personal values.
A primary purpose of the Wood Badge experience is to provide leadership for Scouting and leadership for America. The Wood Badge "ticket" represents the participants commitment to complete a set of personal goals relating to that individuals Scouting position. These goals will significantly strengthen the BSA program in which the participant is involved. In addition, the ticket gives participants an opportunity to practice and demonstrate a working knowledge of the leadership skills that will be of value in many areas of life, both within and beyond Scouting.Participants should complete their Wood Badge ticket no later than 18 months after the course.
