Do you speak Spanish, French, or German? Maybe you know American Sign Language?

Interpreter Strips are little patches you wear on your uniform to show Scouts that you can communicate with them in another than just English.  There are 16 languages available. (They are all listed on the form) All you need to do is print the attached form and bring it to school or to some other person who will attest to your ability.

Venturing Leader Specific Training Released Online

Posted on Sep 1 2016 - 7:22pm

It is our goal to have all adults trained.

Connecting volunteers to the learning content they need when they need it is the purpose of the new BSA LearnCenter. New Venturing content has been added to the learn center consisting of 14 e-learning modules.  It provides training on key topics such as selecting youth officers, building a crew budget and annual program planning, making it possible for Venturing leaders to complete position specific training online. 
Position specific training is delivered in three parts, or learning plans. Each learning plan is designed for the specific positon and is recommended to be taken before the first meeting, within the first 30 days, and within 90 days. The training program is self-paced, allowing volunteers to complete their training at their own pace.
Training is found under Menu, My Dashboard, My Training, or, click the Position Specific Training image on the right side of the page.
