Cub Scout Leader Training
This Is Scouting is is an introductory session that highlights the values, aims, history, funding and methods of Scouting. It addresses how these aims and methods are reached at an age-appropriate style within Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting and Venturing. It is available on-line at the training web page and it takes about 40 minutes. Each leader completes This Is Scouting training only once.
Cub Scout Leader Training begins with the Fast Start Orientation program. This new interactive on-line program will acquaint the new Cub Scout leader with the basic information about their position. While you are at the Online Learning Center to take Fast Start Orientation training, take Youth Protection Training also! Because of the great concern the Boy Scouts of America has for the problem of child abuse in our society, the Youth Protection program has been developed to help safeguard both our youth and adult members. All Scout leaders should take, or retake, Youth Protection Training regularly.
Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training gets you up to speed in your new Cub Scout position. This training is offered for Tiger Den Leaders, Cub Scout Den Leaders, Webelos Den Leaders, Cubmasters, Pack Committee Members, and Pack Trainers. Assistant should take the training for the position they are assisting.
Once you have completed This Is Scouting, Youth Protection Training, and Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training for your position, you are a Trained Cub Scout leader and can wear the Trained patch for your position!
After you've taken This Is Scouting and Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training online, VHC offers an optional, extra opportunity to get your questions answered from a real live, experienced Cub Scout leader. Cub Scout Leader FAQs (Frequently-Asked Questions) will provide a very brief review of the Aims of Scouting, the Cub Scout program, and the organization and functioning of the Cub Scout pack. We'll also have a handout listing BSA resources and local VHC contact information. Best of all, we'll answer your questions - both the questions you bring with you, and any questions that arise out of the discussion.
