“Let every man learn his duty, and to act in the office in which he is appointed, in all diligence” (D&C 107:99)
If you had a magic wand, would you use it to make the Scouting program in your Ward better and more fun for youth? 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 training for Ward and Scout leaders!
The most basic training that all adults involved with Scouting in any capacity need to do is Youth Protection Training. This training MUST to be repeated every 24-month, although we have been asked to repeat it every 12-months.
Each month there is a Scout Leadership Training Council. This Training Council is held 8 times a year on the Stake level and 4 times a year on the District level and is designed to offer important and timely information to help inform, motivate, and inspire Scout leaders as they help the boys and young men of the Stake grow into responsible and able adults.
Our 8 Cub Scout Packs and our 8 Boy Scout Troops are all using Scoutbook. We have many Scoutbook How To articles with more on the way!
