There are many ways to do troop J.L.T.
We separate them into two parts: ( note: Our JASMs Are required to be Eagle)
1. New Leaders - ( Junior Leadership Team)
These scouts have neverhad a leadership position before.
Time: 1 saturday 9:00 to 8:00 with luncha nd dinner provided (Lunch -
subs, Dinner - Pizza)
Location: usual meeting place.
Participants: Asst. PL, Quatermaster, Scribe, Historian, Bugler,
Staff: SM, ASMs (at least one, but as many a possible), SPL, JASMs
Description of Courese: Desigend to give an introduction into boy
leadership and descripe their roles within the troop.
Materials: Scoutmaster Junior Leadership Kit (SMJLTK) (with video), VCR,
Meeting room, Job description hand outs (full set for each boy)
Plan: Basicly follow the SMJLTK plan including the video, and games.
Execpt we ahve the SPL & JASMS lead it to give the scouts more of a sence
that thye are in contol of all aspect of the troop. Be sure to have a
meeting with the staff before hand to pratice everything. THE KEY TO A GOOD
TRAINING IS HAVING THE STAFF KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. The only thing we
change is thay we give each boy a copy of the Junior leader handbook and ask
him to read it cover to cover before is SM confrance in order to get credit
for the leaderhsip postion and to move on to the Senior Leadership Team.
