Becoming a Trained Leader 
 
Parents are the lifeblood of any Cub Scout Pack.  We depend on our parents to step up and help on numerous levels. Without their help, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. 
 
It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in Cub Scouts.  ALL the required training can be taken online - so you can take the courses at your own pace.
 
Steps Toward Leadership
 
Talk to the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about your interest. Discuss which role(s) you might focus your effort. 
  1. Request an Adult Leader Application from the Committee Chair
  2. You will be notified by email once your adult leader application has been approved by the Longhouse Council. They will issue your BSA ID#
  3. Go to my.scouting.org register as a new user with your BSA ID #. You can then take the courses that apply to your leadership role. You can take any of the courses you wish at anytime, but make sure you take the required courses pertaining to your leadership role.
  4. Talk with the Committee Chair about your new role. They might have some additional training and communication tools for you to learn.
The more parents the better the program and the more rewarding it is for everyone.

 


Parent Action Items
  • Volunteer to help with small defined tasks. 
  • Ask your Den Leader if they need help.
  • Ask the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about the needs of the Pack. 
  • Remain positive and look for ways to improve the program - turn problems into solutions.  We are not perfect and we will never will be perfect. So don't expect perfect, expect honest effort.
  • Follow the advice we give the Scouts... Do your best.  If that includes getting trained then you need to get trained.
  • Encourage other parents to help.  Work as a team with projects that need attention.
