Our adult leaders are experienced and trained. They are there to guide, rather than direct the Scouts. Most have been with the Scouting movement since their own sons were in Cubs, some haven't left since they were Scouts themselves!

How can I become a Troop Leader?

All parents who want to help out in any way are always welcome. To become a leader, it takes no small amount of time and a considerable amount of patience and dedication, but the potential rewards are enormous. An aspiring leader must first register with the BSA as an adult, and consent to a mandatory background check. He or she should then become familiar with our Troop and how it operates; develop a broad familiarization of the Scouting program from the ground up; understand and adhere to BSA regulations and guidelines; set an example by practicing the Scout Oath and the Scout Law; be consistent and reliable; and through the Scouting program have a genuine desire to work with young people. Finally, a prospective leader must be approved by the Troop Committee and the Charter Organization. The rest of what you need will come in time. Leadership training in the BSA is always ongoing, and there other leaders always ready to help.
