One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.
For this reason, the South Texas Council is committed to provide top quality training opportunities for leaders, parents and Scouts at the district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.
The training program of the South Texas Council and the Boy Scouts of America is designed to meet the needs of each volunteer leadership position. These training opportunities are varied and flexible enough to reach all leaders through group training experiences, personal coaching, self-study, or on-the-job training.
