Cub Scout Leader/Parent Position Specific Training

Every young person in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun-in short, a trained leader. Because they understand their role, trained leaders have a positive influence on the lives of youth. Research shows that Cub Scouts with trained leaders enjoy the program more and stay in it longer. How well we influence the lives of these youth depends on their leaders' understanding of the program and their responsibilities.

Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training has been developed to give new leaders the knowledge and skills, as well as generate the enthusiasm, that they need to be successful. It is made up of three parts. The first part is an introduction to Scouting and to the Cub Scout pack. New leaders learn about Cub Scouting organization and the essential elements of the Cub Scout program. The second part is on how Cub Scouts have fun in the pack and den. In this unit, the Cub Scout leader will learn about the different things that make Cub Scouting fun for everyone. The third part is specific training for each of the major Cub Scout leader positions in the pack.

Sessions offered will be:

  • Pack Committee (for Committee Chairs and Committee Members)
  • Cubmaster (for Cubmasters and Assistant Cubmasters)
  • Den Leader (for all Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders)
