Nathan, doesn't your council run JLT? I mean the week long camp with
an approved syllabus (heck, they even tell you how many hot dogs to order!).
Following this course, there is supposed to be a joint Course leader,
Scoutmaster, Scout conference where a "ticket" is worked out. It is not
called a ticket (but that is what it is), and is very similar to the
leadership project you discussed. I STRONGLY recommend this course if you
find the council and/or district training staff is doing a decent job of
running it. My son benefitted tremendously from it. This year he is SPL and I
attribute this directly to his complete change in approach to scouting after
JLT and the natural growing up process.
