Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader

Would you get on a plane if the flight attendant came over the intercom and said, "Welcome to XYZ Air. We hope you enjoy your flight from Waynesville to Tampa Bay today. Your seat back can be used as a flotation device and oh by the way only 34% of our pilots are trained."? You would get off that flight immediately. So why would Cub Scout parents want to bring their boy to a den, pack, troop, crew, or post meeting when only 34% of our leaders are trained?? Training is VERY important not only so the leaders know what their role is but also so that the youth can have a quality program. Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader!

Carrie Fredrickson , the District Training Chair; Carriefredricksonphotography@gmail.com is looking for trainers to be on his training team. This is a crucial step in providing periodic trainings in our District as opposed to making you go elsewhere for training. No experience necessary. All would be trainers will need to attend one of the Fundamentals of Training or Trainer's EDGE courses offered at Council.
