Stake Scout Leadership Training Council
Eight times a year (February, March, May, June, July, September, November, and December) the Little Valley Stake holds a Stake Scout Leadership Training Council.
Four times a year (January, April, August, and October) we join the rest of the Zion District in a District Scout Leadership Training Council.
Why do we do this and what is the purpose of the Leadership Training Council?
Scout Leadership Training Council is a monthly program offered by by the Stake and the district that gives leaders hands-on experience and provides a forum for leaders to offer and receive help from their fellow Scouters. This supplemental volunteer training goal is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the Leadership Training Council experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
The next District Scout Leadership Training Council is Thursday, August 9, 2018, at the Fairway chapel located at 860 N. Fairway.
The next Stake Scout Leadership Training Council is Thursday, September 13, 2018, at the Little Valley Stake Center.

Spiritual Thought - Elder Jeffery R. Holland - Boy Scouts of America National Annual Meeting - June 14, 2018
This isn’t a divorce. This is sending kids off to college, in Stockholm and Johannesburg and all around the world. Right now in the Church there are 4.5 million young people. We have a very large responsibility to a very large Church and it’s getting larger. That’s the arena and the growth that we’re facing. We are obligated for all the right reasons to intentionally reach them around the world.”
“Please know how grateful we are to the BSA. We are friends now and we will be friends forever. In 18 months when our charters are finished, we hope that many LDS youth who wish to do so will still choose to be in Scouting. It is just the charter part that we are separating from. We’re going to stay in close contact forever. And we are locked arm in arm and hand in hand for the next 18 months. Please keep your shoulder to the wheel. Let me stress again, ‘This isn’t a divorce.’ It’s growth. We’re not in any way disavowing any of those virtues of Scouting. This is about children. We hope that you keep serving. Let me say it again, ‘Keep Serving.’”LDSBSA.org
