Trained leaders are critical to the success of Scouting. Every young person involved in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun. Trained leaders are more effective at delivering the promise of Scouting because they understand their role, responsibilities, and the resources available to them.


Every Scout deserves a trained leader!
The Pine Tree Council has implemented a mandatory training requirement for all direct contact leaders.  Units will not be able to recharter if their leaders are not trained.  Learn more here…
