Registered Leader Training Initiative for the Next Century

In order to ensure that all youth in our Council receive the best Scouting program possible, the Executive Board of the Heart of America Council considers it imperative that all registered leaders become familiar with the Scouting program, how it works at the different levels and how to implement it, while making it fun and exciting for the youth of the program. All this is accomplished through leadership training. Therefore, beginning with units re-chartering in December of 2009 and January of 2010, a three year training initiative will be established to achieve the goal of 100% trained leaders in all of the traditional units.
