One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.
For this reason, the Sioux Council is committed to provide top quality training opportunities for leaders, parents and Scouts at the district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.
Leadership Training Information
The training program of the Sioux Council and the Boy Scouts of America is designed to meet the needs of each volunteer leadership position. These training opportunities are varied and flexible enough to reach all leaders through group training experiences, personal coaching, self-study, or on-the-job training.
Updates and information for upcoming and on-going training events may be obtained in the Council newsletter - Sioux Trails, at your monthly district roundtable, or on this web site.
The Sioux Council Training Committee has been hard at work striving to offer the best experience possible to Scouters across the Sioux Council. One method we use is taking the results from the Fireside Chat in each district as a guide for things we can improve.
If you are curious about what we accomplished last year related to the Fireside Chat results, please take a moment to read the following article written by the Training Committee Chair, Sheryl Oliver: Training Committee Progress towards Fireside Chat Results
