Wood Badge - NST7-574-24-1 - Grow & Serve

Wood Badge is the premier adult leader training program in Scouting. The program highlights personal and leadership development with courses in team building, problem solving, communication, conflict resolution and many other useful skills. These skills can be taken directly back to packs, troops, ships, crews and teams to help leaders guide youth in dynamic Scouting programs. Wood Badge is a fun, challenging and inspirational Scouting experience for all leaders who wish to improve their leadership skills.

Here are some of the benefits:

• Transformation.  The experience of the course is transformational; you will experience growth in your leadership skills and abilities.

• Line of Sight to the Youth. When working the goals set forth in the ticket, you will have a positive impact on Scouts, units, and districts throughout Bay Area Council

• What and why of Scouting. You will have a deeper understanding of the Scouting Movement and why we embrace it.

• Experience. You will learn and experience things that you will use in your personal life and your Scouting position.

• Fun. You will have fun and you will meet interesting people.

• Other groups. You will make your other groups, like work, church, even family, stronger

The Ticket

You may have heard about Scouters “Working their ticket” and wondered what that meant. The ticket is a group of five goals you set for yourself that contribute to the Scouting Movement.  You can start working your ticket as soon as the instructional part of the course completes.  You learn more about this in the course.
