Why Get Trained?
Would you start a cross country road trip without looking at a map or using a GPS?
Probably not. You might start going in the general direction without looking at map or an exact plan. But you will likely miss an important turn or mile marker. You will waste a lot of fuel, time and energy getting to your destination.
The same is true in Scouting. You have guided your scouting program in the general direction, but you have also probably felt the stress of spinning your wheels and making wrong turns here and there. So now is the time to get trained or refresh that training and share your experiences. Take a look at your scouting road map. Training is there to help you find the best route.
Once you are trained; you will notice that most of the stresses of planning and leading your scouting program fade away because you now have the knowledge and tools to be successful.
Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader!!!
