EVERY YOUTH DESERVES A TRAINED LEADER
Trained leaders are critical to the success of Scouting. Every young person involved in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun. Trained leaders are more effective at delivering the promise of Scouting because they understand their role, responsibilities, and the resources available to them.
WHAT MAKES A TRAINED LEADER?
Adult unit leaders are considered trained, and eligible to wear the official “Trained” emblem, once they have completed the basic training requirements outlined below. Supplemental and advanced training for adults and youth training opportunities are also listed below.
Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality scouting program every Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Sea Scout, and Venturer desires. Every youth member of Scouting deserves a Trained Leader. To look at our upcoming tentative training, click on the Training Schedule button below. Any Scouter can attend any of the training events regardless of District.
