"Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader" and one of the keys to a successful Scouting experience is trained volunteer leadership. Review the Required Training Matrix for details on what specific trainings you should take to make your Scouting unit the best it can be.


Attention All Scout Leaders! Training is the most important tool that we can offer to our boys! To make Scouting a successful venture, we urge you to take advantage of the training offered for your position. Classes are offered at many different times and locations for your convenience. Please feel free to take any course from any district.

The Heart of America Council and your local unit is requiring that all registered leaders be fully trained.
