Get you How To Guide to make a marshmallows roaster here!
You are invited to stop by the Indian Nations Council, BSA booth at Tulsa Down Town Parade of lights after party December 14, 2013 to meet Grand Marshal and Hollywood Starlet Samantha Isler. Let’s thank her for coming back to Tulsa from shooting her NBC hit comedy “Sean Saves the World” to be the Grand Marshal of our parade.
The safety of our scout families driving to Tulsa from surrounding counties for the party, some as far as two hours away is our concern.
A Scout leader is entitled to wear the trained leader emblem when he or she has completed some basic but important training courses.
A direct contact Scout leader is considered fully trained and entitled to wear the Trained leader emblem when he or she has completed the following training courses and the specific training for the position.
Fast Start Training. Fast Start training is the first step for all new leaders and should be taken immediately after they register and before they meet with any youth members. New leaders choose the Fast Start they need to take: Cub Scout Leader, Boy Scout Leader, Varsity Scout Leader, or Venturing Crew Leader. All Fast Start courses are available on DVD, or they can be completed through the Online Learning Center. (If you are new to Scouting, you will be asked to create an account.)
Youth Protection Training. Youth Protection training is required for all leaders who have direct contact with youth. At all times, youth safety is the number one priority. At the same time, adults need to know the rules for keeping themselves safe, too. Comprehensive Youth Protection training teaches all the do’s and don’ts of working with youth. The training is offered through the Online Learning Center, or it may be taken as part of an district or council training course.
This is Scouting. This Is Scouting is a new online training session that replaces New Leader Essentials. It picks up when Fast Start leaves off with six modules of training: The Mission of Scouting, Programs for All ages, Scouting Is Fun, Scouting in the Community, Keeping Our Youth Safe, and Scouting’s Legacy. The training takes about an hour to complete and can be found on Online Learning Center. (If you are new to Scouting, you will be asked to create an account.)
Position Specific Training. Leader position specific training is based on the leader’s position. These courses are taught by informed trainers who know how to engage groups and make learning fun. These courses are offered by the district or council as group training, or may be done as small groups or by personal coaching.
Cub Scout Leaders
Cub Scout Leader Specific training has been developed for the following positions:
Boy Scout Leaders
Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training is for all Scoutmasters and their assistants. Boy Scout leaders also must complete Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training to be considered fully trained.
Venturing Crew Leaders

Leaders can attend any training course in any area of the council, you are not required to attend those training courses which are offered in your local district. Course Listing: Get a Council wide list of all schedule training classes.
