Every Scout deserves to be lead by a TRAINED leader

Would you get on a plane if only half of the pilots were trained?  Of course you wouldn’t.  Maybe a better question would be “Is it OK for my Scout to spend time with an un-trained leader?”  Every young person in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm; in short, a trained leader.  Because they understand their role, trained leaders have a positive influence on the lives of youth.  Research shows that Scouts with trained leaders enjoy the program more and stay in it longer.  How well we influence the lives of these youth depends on their leaders' understanding of the program and their responsibilities.  An addition to giving the boys in your unit the best possible program, training also makes your life easier.  Check out BSA's Training Resource Page for Adult Leaders.  It covers all levels and all BSA programs (Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing, etc).

All newly-registered leaders must first take Youth Protection Training before assuming a leadership role.  It is strongly recommended that parents of all Scouts take this training as well. It cannot hurt to know what to expect from your son's adult leaders. It also protects everyone involved in the unit by helping avoid any ambiguities arising from "not knowing" basic Youth Protection principles. For more information, visit BSA’s Youth Protection page.

Please contact the Northeast District training chair, with any adult or youth training questions.
