Volunteer Training

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality scouting program every Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturer desires. Every youth member of Scouting deserves a Trained Leader.

For 2010 the Heart of America Council has required all direct contact leaders be trained. This includes Den Leaders and Assistant Scoutmasters. Those leaders not trained before the end of the year will be required to be trained before they can recharter.
