Leadership Training

One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.

The Buckskin Council is committed to provide top quality training opportunities for leaders, parents and Scouts at the district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.

Here comes the roundup season….and all those new leaders and scouts to get ready for a new year!   Set up training as soon as possible to give your team the tools to do their job.     Watch the website calendar for those courses your leaders need to have.  Go to online to find the fast start and basic leader training.   

DISTRICT COMMITTEE TRAINING is brand new NOW online as of Aug 12th.  There are courses you need….go take a look!  All are required to have Weather Hazards now as well!

“BLT to Go” Training

Training can be arranged to GO to your unit where you meet in your own community! Just schedule it with Carol or Sue (numbers listed below) and we will bring our materials to your unit. All we ask is that you do your level best to get firm commitments from every leader and/or parent or helper you possibly can to attend and make it worth our time and travel expense. Maybe make it a pizza night, (Carol will bring the Carrot Cake dessert either way). Call or email us with any questions, and to set up a date! EVERY YOUTH DESERVES A TRAINED LEADER and the job is easier when you understand the resources and planning is all done FOR you!
