Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important Scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality Scouting program every Scout desires. Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered in the council. For more information, contact Larry Myers.
