Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader!

Every Leader deserves training so s/he can successfully deliver the scouting program!

  • Cub Scout Leaders are considered trained when they have completed Youth Protection, New Leader essentials, and Cub Scout Leader Specific training for their position.
  • Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters are considered trained when they have completed Youth Protection, New Leader Essentials, Scoutmaster Specific Training, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.
  • Pack or Troop Committee Members are considered trained when they have completed Youth Protection, New Leader Essentials, and Committee Specific Training.

Training of adults to successfully deliver the Boy Scout program has evolved into a well-presented, thorough, curriculum of courses to be completed in sequence. Here are the courses you need to fulfill your commitment of an adult leader.

Every youth deserves a trained leader. Just as we teach our our youth to use a compass and read a map before setting them loose in the wilderness, Scout Volunteers are standing by to help prepare Unit Scouters how to guide and develop the youth in their units with quality, active, and engaging programming. Please see below for updates regarding training.
