HOAC IS #1 IN THE NATION FOR LEADERS TRAINED WITH 96.6% OF OVERALL VOLUNTEERS TRAINED!!  

Congratulations to ALL of our volunteers!!!

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 the council training initiative which affects every registered adult, CLICK HERE.
