Welcome to 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.

For this reason, the Jayhawk Area Council  has adopted the Leader Training Initiative policy for all direct contact leaders. All direct contact leaders must be fully trained in their position in order to recharter with their unit.

The Jayhawk Area 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.

On-Going Regular Training Opportunities

Do you want to know more about what’s going on and where to go for information? Go to your District Roundtable for Cub Scout Leaders or Boy Scout Leaders! These are open to all leaders and interested adults. Here you will find all the information about upcoming events and programs.  Each Roundtable includes short training topics and lively discussions with peers from other Packs and Troops.  This is the best place to get ideas for your upcoming unit programming.  Most leaders will walk out of this meeting with an entire month of ideas planned out. The cost is free and the return is immeasurable.

Locations of Roundtables 

Note: All meetings last from 7-8:30pm and are at the locations listed below unless otherwise noted.  While your district's roundtable will be more specific your unit and closer, you can go to any roundtable regardless of district.
