Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader – One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.

The Lewis & Clark District is working to ensure that all registered leaders are fully trained. Go to Information or Calendar link for training dates and information.

Also, view Roundtable page for supplemental training information
