University of Scouting
Why would you lead Scouts if you're not trained? How can we expect our Scouts to lead if we don't train them?
Adults, not sure where to even start? Begin at www.myscouting.org and take Youth Protection Training and trainings specific to your program. Check out upcoming basic leader training dates to the left in the blue column.
Reminder! Save the Date for University of Scouting, Golden Empire Council's premier training opportunity. It will be taking place January 25th, 2014. If you are a seasoned Scouter or new to Scouting this is a great chance to meet other leaders and learn more about a variety of topics to enhance your Troop and Pack activities!
School has started! As everyone is preparing for fall recruitment Packs, Troops, and Crews can all take advantage of youth & families looking for new activities to join.
