To Train or Not to Train
By: Posted On: 2009-11-13

Hello from PackTrainerSteve,

This post is for New Leaders looking for resources and direction.  Are you asking the question "Do I really need to be trained?"  The answer is Yes, Yes, Yes!!!!!

First, you need to at least complete Youth Protection Training.  It is best to do it in a Live training session if possible, but you can also do it online.  The important thing is to DO IT!

Second, complete your leader specific training.  This will give you insight into how meetings are planned and run along with what works best.

Third, consult with your Pack Trainer and CubMaster for additional ideas they might have to make Den meetings easier and keep the Cubs interested.

Well, time for me to plan my next Den Meeting.

Yours In Scouting, PackTrainerSteve
