Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training


Trained Cub Scout leaders provide a quality, fun-filled program for boys. When leaders understand the whys and hows of Cub Scouting, they are more effective in their roles. Trained leaders know how to use the available resources to provide an exciting and worthwhile program for the boys. Trained leaders also have confidence in carrying out their roles and responsibilities. As a result, Cub Scouts receive a program designed to achieve Scouting’s aims of citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness.

Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training

Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training has been developed to give new leaders the knowledge and skills, as well as generates 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 a module 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 all. The third part is specific training for each of the major Cub Scout leader positions in the pack.
