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 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 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.
