In the Tiger program, an Adult Partner (a parent, grandparent, or other guardian) always accompanies each boy. The Tiger and Adult Partner form a team. The first few Tiger meetings are organized and run by the Tiger Den Leader in order to introduce the Tigers and Adult Partners to Scouting. After that, each Tiger/Adult team selects a topic from the Tiger book and presents the topic to the Tiger Group (one topic per meeting).
The Tiger earns adventure loops towards his Tiger badge. Completion of this badge earns the right for the Scout to wear the Tiger patch on his uniform.
At the end of the Scout year (the last day of DC Public Schools), Tigers graduate into a Wolf den.
