Cub Scout Training Cheryl Fitzgerald

Every Scout Deserves Trained Leaders!  That's what the Council and Button Gwinnett (Norcross, Duluth, Suwanee) District Training Committees are trying to make sure happens. Having a "trained leader" hopefully will lead to a better Scouting program which of course contributes to the growth of the youth Scout.So how are we doing this? We're doing it by offering a lot of new and exciting training - when you need it and where you need it. At present, if you were to check the calendar for Council and District trainings, you'll find many training sessions presently scheduled and we're planning more.Training is becoming more modularized and more frequent to meet your needs.Opportunities range from short introductions to Scouting in general to intensive high-adventure instruction which will lead to safe, exciting outings.We'd also like to mention that you don't have to just attend the training in the Button-Gwinnett District. All of the training is being standardized across the Council, so no matter where or when you take it, you'll receive the same excellent training. In fact a lot of the Districts are starting to share trainers or do joint courses. So, if our District isn't offering something that you'd like to take now, but another District is, then please consider taking it NOW, just a little further away from home. Check the web sites of the other Districts in the Atlanta Area Council for specifics.
