Becoming a Trained Leader 
 
Parents are the lifeblood of any Cub Scout Pack.  We depend on our parents to step up and help on numerous levels. Without their help, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. 
 
It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in Boy Scouts.  ALL the required training can be taken online - so you can take the courses at your own pace.
 
Steps Toward Leadership
 
Talk to the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about your interest. Discuss which role(s) you might focus your effort. 
  1. Request an Adult Leader Application
  2. Go to myscouting.org and taking the courses that apply to that area of focus. You can take any of the courses you wish at anytime, but make sure you take the required ones. 
  3. Submit your Application with a printed copy of your "Youth Protection Training" certificate.
  4. Talk with the Webmaster about your new role. They might have some additional training and communication tools for you to learn.
  5. When you get your official BSA number you should plug it into your myscouting.org account. (This helps at the end of the year when it comes time to re-charter our Pack.)
The more parents the better the program and the more rewarding it is for everyone.

 


Parent Action Items
  • Volunteer to help with small defined tasks. 
  • Ask your Den Leader if they need help.
  • Ask the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about the needs of the Pack. 
  • Remain positive and look for ways to improve the program - turn problems into solutions.  We are not perfect and we will never will be perfect. So don't expect perfect, expect honest effort.
  • Follow the advice we give the boys... Do your best.  If that includes getting trained then you need to get trained.
  • Encourage other parents to help.  Work as a team with projects that need attention.

Youth Protection

BSA Youth Protection Mission Statement

True youth protection can be achieved only through the focused commitment of everyone in Scouting. It is the mission of Youth Protection volunteers and professionals to work within the Boy Scouts of America to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels.

You do not have to be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America to take Youth Protection training.

To take Youth Protection training go to My.Scouting.org and create an account. You’ll receive an email notification with your account information, including a member ID/reference number.

From the My.Scouting.org portal, click Menu then My Dashboard from the menu list. The My Training page displays to take Youth Protection training. Upon completion, you may print a training certificate to submit with a volunteer application. Your training will automatically be updated in our system and associated with the member ID/reference number issued when you created the account.

When your volunteer application is approved, you will receive a BSA membership card that includes your member ID number.

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.
