Has anyone ever talked to you about a training called Wood Badge? This training is intended for all adults in Scouting, from Cub Scout volunteers all the way through to the Scouting Professionals. It focuses on leadership and gives you skills that can be applied to your Scouting role, work environment, home life, and almost anywhere you participate with others.
We use the aims and methods of Scouting to reach this objective. You will be given presentations of leadership skills, organizational tools, and will do a variety of activities based on the best of Scouting traditions. In addition, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of sharing this experience with volunteer and professional Scouters while having a great deal of fun!
Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be an amazing experience and wish they had done it earlier in their Scouting career. It has served as a source of inspiration and helped to revitalize many Scouters’ commitment to Scouting. The Wood Badge experience has positively affected the lives of millions of America’s youths and will help you perform your Scouting functions, improving your unit for your Child and all the other members.
In the weeks ahead, you will read other Scouter’s personal stories about how Wood Badge affected them. They may help inspire you to take this amazing training and improve your journey on the Scouting Trail.
I invite you to speak to others about Wood Badge and sincerely hope that you can participate. Thank you for your time and work in the scouting program.
Yours in Scouting,
