Every youth in Scouting deserves a trained leader!
An adventurous and fun Scouting program will grow and keep youth and their families engaged….. but only with enthusiastic volunteer leaders who are armed with the tools and knowledge to deliver a program of excellence. Our boys deserve nothing less!
Best Practices to insure trained leaders and accurate training records:
- Staple the printed Youth Protection completion certificate to new adult applications.
- Request all volunteers to complete the e-learning modules for their position.
- Request volunteers to complete Youth Protection annually before charter renewal.
- Request any volunteer changing leadership roles to complete training for their position.
- Every Volunteer should ENTER AND SAVE their membership identification # into their my.scouting.org training portal.
Boy Scout Volunteers
- Troop Committee members should complete the E-learning Troop Committee Challenge and Boy Scout Fast Start at myscouting.org.
- Register new troop volunteers as a member of the Troop Committee. Don’t register as an Assistant Scoutmaster until completion of Scoutmaster Specific and Outdoor courses.
Cub Scout Volunteers
- ASK new Cub Scout volunteers to complete their E-learning modules at my.scouting.org.
- NEW training modules for 2015 Cub Programs have been updated.
