Youth Protection –
Teaches you what you need to know to protect both the Scouts and adult leaders from
abuse. This is REQUIRED for all adult leaders and must be taken every 3 years.
New Leader Essentials –
An introductory class that highlight the values, aims, history, funding and methods of
Scouting. It addresses how the aims and methods are reached in an age-appropriate style
within Packs, Troops, Venturing and Varsity. It is a 90 minute presentation with videos,
discussions and hands-on. Ideally this course is taught to all new adult leaders regardless of
what type of unit they are in, so that they understand that all are striving for the same results
with the youth they serve. This training is done only one time.
Leader Specific Training
This training provides the specialized knowledge a new leader needs to assume a leadership role.
Because each course is designed for a specific leadership position, the training time varies. Leader
Specific Training has been developed for the following positions and their assistants.
Tiger Cub Den Leaders Scoutmasters
Cub Scout Den Leaders Troop Committee Members
Webelos Den Leaders Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (OLS)
Pack Committee Members Venturing Advisors
Cub Scout Leader Specific Training (Pack Specific)
Training can be completed in one day or two – three evenings. The leader is
considered trained when he/she has completed NLE and Leader Specific Training.
Boy Scout Leader Specific Training (Troop Specific)
Training is divided into four parts, the first three concentrate on troop operation and
can be done in one full day or three evenings. The final part focuses on outdoor skills
and lasts approximately one and one-half days, depending on the skill level of the
new leader. The leader is considered trained when he/she has completed NLE,
Leader Specific, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.
Troop Committee Members
Training consists of Troop Committee Challenge, which can be completed in three
hours. A committee member is considered trained after the completion of NLE and
Troop Committee Challenge.
Venture Leader Specific Training
This is for Advisors, assistant Advisors, Crew Committee members and incorporates
Venturing’s current adult leader training. It can be completed in approximately one
day, along with NLE. A Venturing leader is considered trained upon the completion of
NEL and Venture Leader Training.
Venture Youth Protection
This is youth protection for Scouts 14 – 20 as well as the Advisors, each group
attending the session without the other being present. There are three scenarios that
are shown and a discussion is held after the viewing and then a video follow-up is
shown that gives some tips on how to deal with the situation. This is required for all
youth and adult members of a Venture Crew.
