Helping

Being helpful is part of the Scout Law, a value we seek to instill in everyone. The best way to help is not to wait until someone asks, but by providing assistance when you know someone needs it.

Any leader or volunteer in your pack can tell you how you can help the group. If you help by doing something you are good at you will find it rewarding.

Volunteering

Volunteering is another way you can get involved. Registering as an adult in your Pack lets others know that you are willing to go beyond just helping others but willing to take on some responsibilities.

To serve as a volunteer requires an adult to register with the BSA:

  1. Complete an BSA Adult Application.

  2. Complete Youth Protection Training.

  3. The pack committee chair and chartered organization reviews and approves the application.

Leading

Being a leader means you are a registered volunteer that takes on a personal commitment to ensure that Scouting is being delivered in a safe manner, the way it was designed, and in a way that makes it meaningful to everyone involved.

Leaders in Scouting find it to be the most rewarding way to spend their time and share their talents.

Become a Trained Leader

Every Scout deserves a trained leader. Adult leaders are eligible to wear the official Trained emblem when they have completed Youth Protection Training and their role-specific courses.

It's easy to become a Trained leader. All the required training can be taken online — so you can take the courses at your own pace.
