Purpose of This Is Scouting Training

This Is Scouting is a supplemental training for all adult leaders. Through a series of presentations, the training presents an overview of the core elements of Scouting, including:

  • organization’s mission, aims, and methods
  • history
  • programs
  • Youth Protection
  • community involvement
  • training

It also provides leaders with a look at BSA resources and a clear understanding of Scouting’s expectations of its adult leadership.

National list This Is Scouting as a supplemental training, however we believe it is such a valuable course that you should take it as soon as possible!
