Scout Master Objectives

The position of a scout leader is very rewarding and full of adventure. This program is all about training young men important life skills so they can be successful. Many leaders may feel very under-experienced and may even feel clueless regarding scouting goals, objectives, and the resources that are available. The great news is that there is tons of aid and training for Scoutmasters too. 

Objectives of Scoutmasters

  1. Serve as a counselor and support and leader.

  2. Train the boys to lead and follow one another as the time is appropriate. Our responsibility is to aid the boys in preparation and progress.
