Awards for Adult Leaders
Cub Scout Leader Training Awards
Recognition awards are available to Cub Scout leaders who complete training, tenure, and performance requirements. These awards are presented by the local council. All of the awards require the completion of Fast Start Training, Basic Leader Training for the position, Youth Protection training, and participation in roundtables or a pow wow or University of Scouting.

Trained Leader Emblem
The Trained Leader emblem is available for all leaders who have completed the Basic Leader Training program appropriate to their positions. The emblem is worn on the left sleeve immediately below and touching the emblem of office for which it was earned. Because trained leaders ensure that the goals of Cub Scouting are met, every Cub Scout leader is encouraged to earn the Trained Leader Emblem for his or her current position.
To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, many religious groups have instituted programs that enable adults that mentor youth to earn a religious emblem. The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on leaders' official uniforms. However, the emblems are awarded through the various religious organizations rather than the BSA.
For a complete list of approved emblems programs, including a list of awards that are provided by each faith, see the Religious Emblems Programs.
