Oak Leaf Junior Leadership Training Nov 16-17

Posted on Oct 9 2019 - 8:17pm

Scouts ( For both Boys and Girls!!!)

 
Many of you have been in the Troop long enough to attend this Training. The link to register is here:
 
 
If you are 12, First Class and ready to take on a Leadership role in our Troop this is your next step. It is FUN and you will lean some leadership skills at the same time (Girls do not need to be First Class for this session only).
 
For those who have attending this as a participant, the next thing is to sign up for Staff. To be truthful, a Scout will learn more Staffing because "you really learn something when you get to teach it”. Staffing is a GREAT experience and we need Staff to sign up ASAP. There will be some Staff training sessions on the 3-4 Wednesdays prior to the course.
 
If you have any questions, please catch me at the Troop meeting or reply to this email.
 
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
