Volunteer Training

BE PREPARED to VOLUNTEER: deservestrained


All registered adults in any Scouting unit must first complete “Youth Protection Training” every year to ensure that our events and environment around Scouting are a safe place. Please go to myscouting.org to complete your training today!

Our Cub Scout Pack is a 100% volunteer-run organization: We need you!

Training is on the Council schedule NOW!

Training ensures that adult volunteers have the skills and knowledge to offer and lead great experiences with our Scouting youth.  “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, as well as a training session that is specific to their role.trained patch

From there, our local District, Council, Region, and the National Scouting Organization offer an assortment of training opportunities. Some delivery methods of training include:

  • Online training available at https://my.scouting.org
  • Individual training from the Pack for events and small volunteer tasks
  • Local Claycord training sessions led by Muir District of the local Council
  • Training events and courses held at the Council office in Pleasant Hill or at Camp Herms in El Cerrito
  • Full leader training over a longer period of time such as “Wood Badge” to really immerse leaders in the fundamentals, history, skills, and opportunities to make the best youth Scouting experience.

Check out the MDSC website for training opportunities. All of this training is available for YOU to get involved and make a positive difference in the lives our our Scout youth.  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.

 For more information on how important trained adult volunteers are to scouting, check out the BSA webpage  “how you can help”.
