>From the Adult Application (inside front cover) (28-501L, May 1996):
"Qualification. Each leader shall be a citizen of the United States or
satisfy one of the approved alaternatives. (See your local council for
information). All leaders must be 21 years of age or older, except
assistant Scoutmasters, assistant Varsity Scout Coaches, assistant den
leaders, assistant Cubmasters, and assistant Webelos den leaders, who
must be 18 or older. No one may register in more than one position in
the same unit, except the chartered organization representative."
And, from "Youth Protection Guidelines -- Questions and Answers"
(#46-221, 1994 Printing:
"Two-deep leadership. Two registered adult leaders or one registered
leader and a parent of a participant, one of whom must be 21 years of age
or older, are required on all trips and outings."
Only in the Exploring program is the requirement that *both* leaders be
21 or older -- for what I think is an obvious reason: the leaders must be
older than the youth.
