The success of a Tiger Cub den depends on active, enthusiastic families working alongside a knowledgeable, well-trained den leader.
The Tiger Cub den leader plans and carries out a year-round program of activities for the Tiger Cub den and gives the
program continuity. Using the concept of shared leadership, the Tiger Cub den leader works with a different boy–adult partner team each month to plan two den meetings, a Go See It outing, and the den’s part in the pack meeting. (Some teams may serve more than one month, depending on den size).
Shared leadership is a key element of the Tiger Cub program because direct adult involvement is important for boys at this age. Through this sharing of leadership, each boy and adult partner team is given an opportunity to lead. Shared leadership also brings a wealth of knowledge and variety to the program as each host team has
something different to bring to the program.
As a Tiger Cub den leader, you willprovide experience and continuity throughout the program year.
