Leadership Troop Program Feature for Boy Scouts

The Boy Scout Planning Guide suggests a Leadership Troop Program Feature  for May 2013.  This program feature offers the opportunity to explore different aspects of leadership programs. This would be an especially relevant program theme if your troop youth leadership elections are approaching. A PLC can use this program feature to plan a month of activities with a focus on leadership.

The plans for the Leadership troop program feature can be found in  Volume 2 of Troop Program Features from BSA:

One of the lessons that Scouting teaches is leadership. In a troop, leadership is learned the Scout way—by doing. A young man gets a taste of leadership in various positions ranging from senior patrol leader to assistant patrol leader.

Leadership Programs

Younger scouts can work on their early rank requirements, including outdoor, citizenship, and personal development requirements.  Older scouts can earn the Citizenship in the Community Merit BadgeCitizenship in the Nation Merit Badge, and Citizenship in the World Merit Badge.  Some other related merit badges include  American Cultures Merit Badge and American Heritage Merit Badge.

The featured activity for this month is a survival scenario in which Boy Scouts look at the resources available and make decisions about which would be most useful in a wilderness survival situation.
