Every Youth Deserves  a Trained Leader

As parents and volunteers in the Boy Scouts of America, we all want the best program for our children. And the best program means the best experience. So how do we get that? In large part by being the best leaders we can be. The Scout Oath begins with..."On My Honor I Will Do My Best..." As we set the example; we should expect nothing less of ourselves. Training affords us the best opportunity to be the best we can be.

Leaders can attend any training course in any area of the council, you are not required to attend those training courses which are offered in your local district.  Adults MUST be a registered volunteer in order to take training.
