Become a Trained Leader! 

We aren't kidding when we say parents are the lifeblood of our pack. Without them, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in our pack. All of the required training can be taken online - so you can take the training at your own pace. Below are some steps that you can take to getting yourselves up to speed.

Leaders who complete Youth Protection Training and Position Specific Training earn the right to wear the trained patch on the left sleeve of their uniform, beneath the patch representing the position for which they are trained.  Webelos Den Leaders are required to also complete Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) training.

Parent Action Items
  • Volunteer to help with small defined tasks. 
  • Ask your Den Leader if they need help.
  • Ask the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about the needs of the Pack. 
  • Remain positive and look for ways to improve the program - turn problems into solutions.  We are not perfect and we will never will be perfect. So don't expect perfect, expect honest effort.
  • Follow the advice we give the boys... Do your best.  If that includes getting trained then you need to get trained.
  • Encourage other parents to help.  Work as a team with projects that need attention.
