Training

 

 

Trained leaders provide a quality, fun-filled program for boys and young men and young women. When leaders understand the whys and hows of Scouting, they are more effective in their roles and the youth win!

It doesn't matter if you just joined Scouting or have 20 years under your belt as a Scoutmaster -- you can learn something new. Scouting trains all of its adult leaders, as well as its youth leaders.
