University of Scouting at Jersey Shore Council

 

Scouting University
As you all know, Scouting is a fantastic program that assists our youth in physical and mental development.

Our role as leaders of these young people is to teach and guide them by our words, actions, and examples. It’s a daunting and sometimes intimidating experience but, in the end, it’s well worth the effort of your “hour a week”. The BSA has programs to assist you in your role as a leader. It starts with Youth Protection and position specific training. That’s a great beginning but sometimes we need to expand our knowledge of different subject areas or venture into learning something new to stay relevant in this ever changing world.

On March 5, 2016, our colleagues at the Jersey Shore Council are hosting their “University of Scouting” which can help deliver that knowledge in a fun, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere.

Please click here for more information about this event.
