New Leader Essentials Training

New Leader Essentials is an introductory session that highlights the values, aims, history, funding, and methods of Scouting. It addresses how these aims and methods are reached in an age-appropriate style withing Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, and Venturing. Videos, discussions, and hands-on reinforecment are presented during the 90-minute training session.

Benefits of New Leader Essentials
  1. Assistance in implementing the full Scouting program with chartered orgainzations
  2. A better understanding of the advantages of encouraging youth and adult volunteers to move through the traditional program as their youth mature
  3. An awareness of the differnt aspects of the Scouting program, which may result in leaders taking advantage of those programs for a child in a different age group

Ideally, all unit-based volunteers - Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders - take this session at the same time, so they understand that they are all striving for the same results with the youth they serve. Each leader completes New Leader Essentials only once.
