Trained leaders are essential to the success of our organization. 

Leader Position Training Information 

Honoring our commitment to delivering the best possible program to our youth, in Chester County Council we require all direct-contact adult leaders to complete basic training for their position.  Untrained direct-contact leaders lose the privilege of serving in that capacity and will be moved to Committee Member when the unit renews its charter until completion of the required training.

Your unit can see what training your leaders have completed by using the account of your committee chair, top unit leaders, or chartered organization representative (the unit “key three”).

Every youth deserves a trained leader. Thank you for your service and for seeking the training opportunities that will help you better serve our Scouts.  For more information, contact the Training team at [email protected]
