Every Youth Deserves a Trained LeaderTrained
One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second onlyto the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadershiptraining provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.

Whether you are a new leader or an experienced leader, there is a training program for you! You might be wondering where to start, or what to do! Training can help!
The Basic Leader Training program is a seamless training program that:

  • Provides an increased awareness of all aspects of the Scouting program.
  • Develops an understanding that Scouting fosters the same values and aims for youth at all levels.
  • Uses proven methods to deliver the values and aims of Scouting in an age-appropriate program.
  • Affords leaders an easy and convenient transition as they advance from one program to another.
  • Removes perceived and artificial barriers among Scouting volunteers.

The Council has developed a Comprehensive Training Booklet for Scout Leaders that outlines all of the available trainings, how to complete them, and which trainings are for you!  It also includes a schedule of our key training dates and what the training plan for the council is.  We encourage you to take a look at all the great information this booklet provides you.
