Training dates have been posted to the calendar. If you have leaders who lack training, please insure that they allocate the time to attend training. Training is not just for front line leaders. Parents who want their scout to get the most out of the program, should attend training and learn just how the scouting program works. Training will make your job easier and you will get much better results.
So you are starting to get more involved with your Scout's unit and activities and you see the benefits that the program has for him and how it will have a positive impact on the rest of his life. Did you know that there is an adult leadership training available to you that will have a positive impact on the rest of your life, not just for Scouting, but professionally and personally? More information.
