“Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader”

Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader – one of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.

The Heart of America Council is requiring that all registered leaders are fully trained. Thanks for your help on providing a better program for the youth! To view what type of training you need for your position within Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing please view the BSA Training Initiative
