BE PREPARED TO VOLUNTEER: deservestrained

HELP OUR SCOUTS AND OUR PACK

All registered adult leaders in any scouting unit must complete “Youth Protection Training” every two years to ensure that our events and environment around scouting are a safe place. Please go to BSA’s Youth Protection page to complete your training today!

Pack 262 is a 100% volunteer-run organization. We need you!

Information on adult leader training can be found on the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council website.

Training ensures that adult leaders have the skills and knowledge to offer and lead great experiences with our scouts.  “Trained” patches signify that the leader has completed the minimum training requirements for their position.  Usually this consists of an overview to scouting online course and a training session that is specific to their role.trained patch

From there, an assortment of training opportunities are available at the district, council, regional, and national levels. Some delivery methods of training include:

  • Online training at https://my.scouting.org
  • Individual training and mentorship from pack leaders for events and small volunteer tasks
  • In-person training sessions held locally in Clayton/Concord, at the MDSC office in Pleasant Hill, or at Camp Herms in El Cerrito
  • MDSC’s full-day “LEAD” training every January at Diablo Valley College
  • Full leader training over a longer period of time such as Wood Badge to immerse leaders in the fundamentals, history, skills, and opportunities to make the best youth scouting experience

All of this training is available for YOU to get involved and make a positive difference in the lives our our scouts.  Every new volunteer helps to enhance the experience of all the boys in the pack.  None of us knew what we were doing at first, but that is the point of all the training, materials, and support.
