Program Updates - 2015 and Beyond

The next three years promise to be exciting for Scouting as all three of our traditional programs will be updated based on several years of volunteer-led research and development. Venturing was first in 2014 with a totally new program and recognition approach focusing on progressive development in adventure, leadership, and service to others and personal growth.

The Cub Scout program updates are just around the corner.  All of the Cub Scout program updates are can found at:

Online Training for the New Cub Scouting Program 

The online training for den leaders, Cubmasters, committee chairs/members and charter organization representatives has been updated with the help of volunteers from around the country.  The new training will be divided into shorter, more targeted modules so leaders can get the training they need, in the order they want, any time they need it.  The new training is organized into time-based sections:  the learning needed prior to the first meeting, within the first 30 days, and training needed to be considered position-specific “trained".

The new training will be implemented in conjunction with BSA’s new Learning Management System.  The anticipated timing for launching this new tool is June 30, 2015.  Keep an eye out at for more information.
