Scouts-L Mail Archive for October of 1998: Introduction
Thu, 29 Oct 1998 17:41:31 -0800
Hi-My name is Brian Phelps. I am a former Scout and even served five years
(from 1975-1980) in north-western San Francisco as a District Executive,
until I couldn't afford it any longer. I have been a participant and leader
in Scouts most of my life, though I've currently taken a sabbatical for a
while to concentrate on my business (and wait for my young children to get
to Scouting age).
Along with my Internet marketing and consulting business, I am a writer. I
have developed a couple of web sites. The one that might interest most list
participants is called White Stag (http://www.whitestag.org/)
<http://www.whitestag.org/)> . The White Stag program is the origin of the
11 leadership skills that are currently taught in junior leader training and
Wood Badge. It has been in existence for 40 years.
I am married-my wife Sharla and I have four children with a 5th due in
March. We are members of the Livermore 2nd Ward of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints. She serves in the Young Women program and I
have just been called as a Stake Missionary.
That's a little bit about me. Look forward to the list...!

White Stag Leadership Development
The White Stag Web is the most comprehensive source on the web for
information on the 11 leadership skills. Explorer Post 122 is the basis for
the leadership skills taught in the BSA Junior Leader Training and Wood
Badge courses. We have presented these competencies in a year-round,
experiential, outdoors program to youth age 11-18 since 1958.
