New Syllabus for Leadership Skills for Troops
A new syllabus for the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops has been released. This program provides training to youth leaders in the responsibilities of their troop or patrol positions. This training should be provided about the same time as the assumption of duties. Additional information will be found in the Scoutmaster Handbook( Chapter 7) and on http://bsaseabase.org/sitecore/content/scouting/about/factsheets/youthmembertraining.aspx. Scroll down under Boy Scouts to get to the fact sheet for ILST. To download the syllabus, click here
At our trading posts one will find the sets of "Job Description Cards"(No. 30521) that provide a gentle reminder to the scouts of their responsibilities as a troop leader.
