Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. We appreciate our volunteers and want to help you succeed in your role. Training will help you have more fun and do a better job in your leadership position. Every Scouting program has a basic training course that will help you get started in the role you wish to pursue. After that, there are additional training courses you can take if you’d like, to learn more specialized skills.

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. With that in mind, Youth Protection Training is required for all BSA registered volunteers.
