Hornets Nest District - Training

Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader

If you had a magic wand, would you use it to make the Scouting program better and more fun for youth so they stayed in Scouting longer, so it had a larger impact on their lives? What if the same magic wand made leadership roles easier, more rewarding, and led to better retention among adult leaders? Would using that magic wand be a top priority?


Well, such a magic wand does exist—in the form of the learning and training programs for leaders in the Boy Scouts of America.
