Adult Leadership Training in Troop 1324

As a small troop, we always have a need for whatever help is available.  Any time you have to offer is extremely beneficial.  A parent or other interested adult can consider becoming a Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop Committee member, or you can help by assuming a specific duty under the guidance of another Committee member.

All adult leaders who have close contact with the Scouts must take Youth Protection Training.  In addition, The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston requires all volunteers 18 and older to attend a “Protecting God’s Children” session. This training is mandated by the Archdiocese for adults who work with children on a regular ongoing basis. Registration is handled through Virtus online.

 

In addition to the youth safety training, the BSA has developed a variety of materials, from quick references to complete courses, all designed to help members improve leadership skills and deliver a quality program. Many of the courses can be taken online. Also, a Scout leader is entitled to wear the “Trained” leader emblem when he or she has completed some basic but important training courses:
