Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training

Why We Train Leaders

Every young person in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun—in short, a trained leader. When you understand your role as a trained leader, you will have a positive influence on the lives of youth. How well we influence the lives of these youth depends on your understanding of the program and your responsibilities.
