Every scout deserves TRAINED LEADERS. Review What makes a Trained Leader? to identify the courses necessary to be a fully Trained Leader.
Scouting Trail Program recognizes our Leaders with a patch at the conclusion of each course. These patches are provided at the conclusion of each course attended in the classroom. Patches can be ordered or purchased through the East Bay Scout Shop for courses completed through online training.
The Boy Scouts of America places the highest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturing programs.
Youth Protection is required for all registered Adult Leaders. Adult Leaders must take this course every two years in order for the Pack to Re-Charter.
To take this course, visit My Scouting.Org and create an account. After completing the course, print the certificate of completion for the Pack records.
