Adult Leader Training

Scouting provides opportunities for our youth members to achieve their goals and become active members of their local, national and international communities.

As an adult leader, you play an integral role in supporting the development of our Scouts as they reach their full potential, whether you are directly supporting our young people or supporting your fellow adults.

Every adult and Rover Scout will embark on a five-step journey to become a fully-trained leader. A lot of the curriculum will be consistent for all leaders, as we prepare to support our Scouts on their continuous journey through the Youth Program.

At appropriate points in your training pathway, you will have the opportunity to focus on what you have learned in the context of your role in Scouting, whether that is in specific sections for our Youth Program leaders (Leaders of Youth) or supporting other adult members for our Program Support leaders (Leaders of Adults).
