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. By 2016, all direct contact leaders must be fully trained in order to recharter with their unit. This new policy will be rolled out in stages beginning with Youth Protection Training by January, 2013. All Pack leaders, Troop committee and Venturing committee members must be fully trained by January, 2014. Troop direct contact leaders by January, 2015 and Venturing and Varsity direct contact leaders by January 2016.
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.
