Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: Catholic Church Adult Training
Catholic Church Adult Training

This is a summery from the question that I posed to the group concerning
required training for Catholic Sponsored Units.
Received many responses. Some dioceses require training of the adult
leaders while some do not.
It is up to each diocese to determine which adults that volunteer in the
youth ministries must be trained. This training is equivalent to our YP
program. For any unit that is sponsored by a Catholic Church, the scout
unit is part of their Youth ministry. Many dioceses do not require Scout
Leaders to take the additional training. Some do, so it is wise to find
I am currently trying to contact our Catholic Committee on Scouting for
Baltimore. For the other units out there, this is the place to find out.
Thanks for all of those you responded.
