Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader
Sounds simple enough, but with our busy lives ... it is far from easy.
The GLAAC Training Team is here to ensure that leaders are offered every opportunity to get the training they require, and that our youth deserves.
We will offer:
In order to accomplish these goals, we will offer:
Youth Protection training
The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs. Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers. "YPT" must be taken every year, so that the certificate (good for 2 years) covers the entire program year from Jan 1st to Dec 31st.
Position Specific Classroom
Each chartered organization appoints a volunteer, other than the unit leader or assistant unit leader, as its chartered organization representative to represent it as a member of the district committee and as a voting member of the local council. The primary responsibilities of the chartered organization representative are to help units be successful and to provide coordination between the chartered organization and the BSA. Every chartered organization representative is encouraged to become an active, participating member of one of the district’s committees.
This position-specific course for Scouting unit committee members is intended to provide members with the basic information they need to support a scouting unit and conduct a successful program. This course (along with Youth Protection training) is what committee members need to be considered “trained.”
The course will provide Scoutmasters with the basic information and tools they need to lead successful Boy Scout troops. Scoutmasters and assistant Scoutmasters who complete this course, Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, and Youth Protection Training are considered “trained” for those positions.
This course is intended to provide Cubmasters with the information and tools they need to successfully lead a Cub Scout pack. Cubmasters and assistants who complete this training and Youth Protection training are considered “trained” for both positions.
This course is intended to provide Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos den leaders with the information and tools they need to conduct successful den meetings. Den leaders who complete the Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos training, along with Youth Protection training, are considered trained for their position.
