Supplemental Training

Supplemental training is designed to provide orientation beyond the basic training offered in leader-specific training.

New-Unit Organizer Modules
These modules were prepared by the National Membership Committee’s New-Unit Organizer Task Force. They are designed to help Scouters understand the role of the new-unit organizer and the new-unit commissioner, and how to use the Unit Performance Guide. The modules are designed as 50-minute sessions to use at district or council training events. New-Unit Organizer Training and the accompanying slide deck are designed to be used to train new-unit organizers.

CubCast and ScoutCast
CubCast and ScoutCast are monthly audio podcasts designed to help Cub Scout and Scouts BSA leaders learn more about topics of interest.

Planning and Conducting a Safe Scout Outing 
Although it can be effectively used at the unit level, this outline and video were designed to be presented at a district or council-level venue, such as a University of Scouting. An explanation of the sandwich principle and emphasis on the importance of qualified supervision and discipline are at the core of this training. NOTE: Due to the large size of this file, it is highly recommended that it be downloaded rather than trying to view it directly from this site.

Recruiting Quality Training Staff
This session will provide an overview of the steps involved in recruiting quality district or council training staff and will allow participants to take a step-by-step practice run through the recruiting process.
