What is a
What does it mean when we say: “a
Scout-led troop”?

      “Empowering scouts to be leaders”
          - this is the core of Scouting

   Scouts taking responsibility for their activities and
          What does it mean for us?

 •   Opportunity to make plan, organize and make decisions
 •   An environment to practice how to lead others
 •   A chance to make mistakes and learn from our mistakes
 •   Allows us to learn how to teach others to be successful
 •   Learn the importance of working as a team
 •   Gives us a chance to be creative
 •   Opportunity to direct and run an organization

Leadership is a position of responsibility; not authority
        Our responsibility (Scouts):

• Attend and participate in our
  weekly meetings and monthly
• Respect one another and allow our
  fellow scouts to lead
• Take responsibility for our actions
• Provide solutions
• Be part of planning and executing
  of our events
• Volunteer to help, organize and run
  our events
• Honor our commitments
• Help one another at all times
        The way we lead:

• A Boy Scout troop is a
  small democracy.
• Under the
  direction:                    • “The patrol method is not a way
   – Scouts are formed into       to operate a Boy Scout troop, it
     patrols                      is the only way. Unless the
   – plan the troop's program     patrol method is in operation,
   – …and make it a reality       you don't really have a Boy
                                  Scout troop.”
                                    • —Robert S. S. Baden-Powell
         Success by empowering the
•   Organize and run the Troop meetings
•   Organize and run the Troop activities
•   Utilize the Patrol leaders' council
•   Plan the Troop calendar

       Remember ……..Scouting is 75% outing
Adult Responsibility in a Scout-led
         In a Scout-run Troop, Adults are…

•   Mentor                ……Adults are
•   Guide
•   Counsel
                             there to
•   Advise                 support the
•   Train                     Scouts
•   Delegate
•   Provide logistics
•   Support
•   Encourage
•   Safety net
       A Scout-led Troop has little room for:

• Adults operating in Cub Pack mode
• Adults loudly asserting authority
• Adults jumping in with more enthusiasm than
• Adults enabling codependency
• Adults driving advancement more than the scout
• Adults solving the problems
• Adults taking on the Scout’s responsibility
• Adults packing the Scout’s campout gear
• Adults socializing instead of supporting
                Troop Organization
                                                                            Scoutmaster – John Balden
