I can accept that traning ALL leaders may not be posible - but it
can still be YOUR goal! How about have all NEW parents watch
the FAST start videos? As well as the YPP ? Maybe have
the current SPL talk about JLT and how youth leaders
need time to learn for the challenges of tomorrow?
Watching a kid fail can be the hardest task for a scout learder!
But watching him take charge of the unit - 6 months later
and present the scoutmaster with a best troop at the camporee
award - can make it all worth while!
When I was a TROOP SPL - my Scoutmaster had the opportunity
to have camped with Baden Powel!
