The methods of Scouting are the ways that Scouting’s aims of developing character, citizenship, and fitness in youth are achieved. One of the methods is leadership development.
Scouts BSA Youth Leadership Positions
A reader asks a question about adult involvement. “The adults are very enthusiastic, which is great, but they tend to talk over the kids and take over the meetings. Some of the adults are keeping the kids form running the meetings successfully.”
In a troop committee, committee members provide the support and resources which the youth leaders of the troop need to carry out their ideas.
I was given a book to reveiw called A Scout Leader’s Guide to Youth Leadership Training: Working the Patrol Method. I am really impressed by this book.
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an intense week long leadership training class for youth
One thing we’d like our youth leadership to consider is patrol activities. We have a pretty active troop program, but the patrols never do anything on their own. They could hike or get together to work on a requirement or even go on a campout.
