Become a Trained Leader

Parents are the lifeblood of our pack.  Without you, our program would not exist and our boys would be missing out on all the fun Cub Scouts has to offer.
It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in our pack.  ALL of the required training can be taken online - so you can take the training at your own pace.  Complete the following steps to become a registered and trained pack leader

Explore Leadership Options
  • Talk to a current leader (Cubmaster, Den Leader, Committee Chair) about your willingness to help
  • Discuss which role would best fit your talents and comfort level
Complete Youth Protection Training
  • Go to and create an account.
  • Take Youth Protection Training (about 30 minutes)
  • Print the Youth Protection Traing Certificate (available upon completion of the course)
Complete Adult Application
  • Obtain a hard copy Boy Scouts Adult Application from a pack leader OR download the PDF application below.  NOTE: The hard copy is a triplicate carbon copy application.  The PDF must be filled out manually in triplicate.
  • Fill out the application.  Be sure to sign the background check waiver and include three personal references.
  • Turn in your Adult application and Youth Protection Training Certificate to the pack Committee Chair or Cubmaster
Complete Position Specific Training
  • Position specific training is REQUIRED for all direct access youth leaders and highly recommended for committee leadership positions.
  • Position specific training can be taken in person, or online at
  • It is highly recommended to take in-person training.  It is much more time efficient than taking the online courses.
  • Find out from pack leaders when the next district sponsored in-person training session is.
  • Attend in-person position specific training or complete training online

Parent Action Items
  • Volunteer to help with small defined tasks. 
  • Ask your Den Leader if they need help.
  • Ask the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about the needs of the Pack. 
  • Remain positive and look for ways to improve the program - turn problems into solutions.  We are not perfect and we will never will be perfect. So don't expect perfect, expect honest effort.
  • Follow the advice we give the boys... Do your best.  If that includes getting trained then you need to get trained.
  • Encourage other parents to help.  Work as a team with projects that need attention.
