ScoutClass is a leadership development series designed for prospective and current leaders.  ScoutClass is a zero fee digital library for our adult Scouters.  Videos are broken down into categories below.  The videos are between 5-15 minutes in length and cover a wide range of topics relevant to unit program. This is for leaders done by leaders and we want to thank them for their contributions.  The ultimate goal of ScoutClass is to be a comprehensive digital library filled with Scouting how to videos from volunteers for volunteers
