Tuscarora Council Introduction To Leadership Skills For Troops (ILST) Youth Training!  
Tuscarora Spring 2020
Introduction to Leadership Skills For Troops (ILST)
 
  • Who: Every Scout in a Troop who currently holds (or will soon hold) a leadership position, including all elected positions and any appointed positions at the discretion of the Senior Patrol Leader. In some Troops, this might mean that this course is for every Scout!
  • What: Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST)
  • When: Saturday, March 21, 2020
  • Time: 8:00 am – 2:00 pm
  • Where: Camp Tuscarora (965 Scout Rd, Four Oaks, NC 27524)
  • Cost: $10, includes course materials and lunch.
 
Deadline to register and pay is March 6, 2020. (A $10.00 late fee will be applied to any registrations received after that date and absolutely no registrations may be added after 5:00p. on March 13, 2020.)
 
The purpose of the ILST course is to teach Scouts in leadership positions about their roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help youth leadership within Troops understand their responsibilities and to equip them with the organizational and leadership skills needed to fulfill those responsibilities.
 
ILST is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Scouts and is a prerequisite to National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). This course provides tools and resources to do a better job of conducting a true youth-led Troop and emphasizes the power of the patrol method.

Registration must be completed online. We regret that we are unable to accept any other forms of registrations, including mailed, phoned, or “paper” registrations.

Spring Trainer's EDGE (Train The Trainer) Course   
Trainer's EDGE

Saturday,
March 7, 2020

8:00a. - 4:00p.

Camp Tuscarora
965 Scout Road, Four Oaks, NC 27524
.
Trainer's EDGE is the required "train-the-trainer" course for Council training team members, OA Lodge Trainers, and Wood Badge and NYLT staff members. It will also help those who may have trained for other organizations learn the BSA's training techniques and refreshes the skills of current BSA trainers. 
 
The course is intended for both youth and adult trainers.
 
The purpose of the Trainer's EDGE course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer. It is meant to supplement the practice offered through Wood Badge and NYLT staff development, with a focus on the participant, while raising the level of skill a trainer brings to the staff experience.
 
While only practice can polish these skills, this course is intended to "train the trainer" on behaviors and resources, while offering hands-on, practical experience in methods and media. Emphasis is on how to be an effective trainer by learning great presentation techniques.
 
□        Registration begins at 8:00 am
□        Course begins at 8:30 am
□        Course ends at 4:00pm
 
The fee for this training is $10.00 - lunch will be provided.
