The key to a successful Cub scout program is trained leadership. The district
that I am in, Fort Hamilton of the Dan Beard Council, is actively looking for
new and positive ways of increasing the number of trained leaders. No matter
how often and flexible our training schedule is, there are always a few new
leaders who just can't make our training. Some are single parents, others work
evenings, week-ends, or multiple jobs. We don't want to discourage the
volunteers, and we want to give them every opportunity to learn.
We have heard that at one time, National use to have a self study course for
new Cub scout leaders. Does any one have a self study course that they are
using for their district or council training?
What we are envisioning is an outline for the individuals to follow,
referencing handouts, sections of the den leader's manual, and hopefully some
audio or visual tapes. Also, we see a need for some means of measurement such
as test, to help assess the new leaders grasp of the training. If you have any
ideas or examples, please either send them directly to me, or post them so
others can benefit as well.
