Becoming a Trained Leader 
 
Parents are the lifeblood of any Cub Scout Pack.  We depend on our parents to step up and help on numerous levels. Without their help, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. 
 
It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in Boy Scouts.  ALL the required training can be taken online - so you can take the courses at your own pace.
 
Steps Toward Leadership
 
Talk to the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about your interest. Discuss which role(s) you might focus your effort. 
  1. Request an Adult Leader Application
  2. Go to myscouting.org and taking the courses that apply to that area of focus. You can take any of the courses you wish at anytime, but make sure you take the required ones. 
  3. Submit your Application with a printed copy of your "Youth Protection Training" certificate.
  4. Talk with the Webmaster about your new role. They might have some additional training and communication tools for you to learn.
  5. When you get your official BSA number you should plug it into your myscouting.org account. (This helps at the end of the year when it comes time to re-charter our Pack.)
The more parents the better the program and the more rewarding it is for everyone.

 


Parent Action Items
  • Volunteer to help with small defined tasks. 
  • Ask your Den Leader if they need help.
  • Ask the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about the needs of the Pack. 
  • Remain positive and look for ways to improve the program - turn problems into solutions.  We are not perfect and we will never will be perfect. So don't expect perfect, expect honest effort.
  • Follow the advice we give the boys... Do your best.  If that includes getting trained then you need to get trained.
  • Encourage other parents to help.  Work as a team with projects that need attention.

Outdoor Skills and Baloo - We can do it all!

With the completion of last weekends (3/22-3/24) training for a number of our leaders, we are now certified to run just about any type of function we would like under the BSA guidelines.  We now have six (6) leaders, five (5) of them through this weekends training, certified int he outdoor skills necessary to prepare our Webelos Scouts for Boy Scouts.

Aside from the Outdoor Skills, we increased our Outdoor Leader trained ranks with 5 new certified leaders for running Cub Scout activities outside of the Den Meetings.  As our leaders continue to train and certify, the Pack opportunities for fun also expand...

Remember the Cub Scout (and the Leader) helps the Pack Go!

Our special thanks to:

We are proud to announce that all of our leaders are were officially trained and certified by council in February!  Trained leaders are one of the requirements outlined in our annual recharter that takes place in January.
 
Our Council has verified that ALL of our leaders have taken the required courses and as a result we achieved Gold Status in the Journey to Excellence Requirements defined by the Boy Scouts of America.
 
This took lots of work and we appreciate the effort an cooperation of all our leaders.  Well done everybody!
