A cornerstone of the Boy Scout programs is training. Some of these training courses are conducted by districts and some by the council; others are available through the BSA ONLINE LEARNING CENTER. (You must have/create an account to log in.)
Become a trained leader
If you had a magic wand, would you use it to make the Scouting program better and more fun for youth so they stayed in Scouting longer, so it had a larger impact on their lives?
What if the same magic wand made leadership roles easier, more rewarding, and led to better retention among adult leaders? Would using that magic wand be a top priority?
Well, such a magic wand does exist - in the form of the learning programs for leaders in the Boy Scouts of America. Common sense tells us training is important, and research shows the importance of trained leaders.
A trained leader is knowledgeable and more confident in the role being performed. Trained leaders exhibit a knowledge and confidence that is picked up by people around them. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, safety, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! These pages contain many of the “magic wands” and resources.
