A Merit Badge Counselor is an adult who works with the scouts to help them earn their Merit Badges. Counselors include Troop parents, alumni, Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and even just friends of the Troop that have some knowledge on a particular subject and the desire to help the boys further their own knowledge and advance through Scouting. The counselors meet with the scouts and go over all the requirements of the particular merit badge the boy is trying to earn. The counselor then signs off the Blue Card when the scout has completed all of the requirements.

NB: Paoli 1 Counselors and Horseshoe counselors perform the same function but vary considerably in how the badges are earned. Horseshoe is sometimes called a "Merit Badge Factory" where badges are taught and then given after a week. A Troop counselor on the other hand acts less as a teacher and more as a mentor for boys who work primarily on their own initiative with the badges being acquired sometimes after months of work instead of only a few days.
