Additionally, this training is a great opportunity to meet other Scout leaders and share activities and ideas. Check-in at the event starts at 8a.

Boy Scout Leader Indoor

Cahokia Mounds District will host a Boy Scout Leader indoor training for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters on Saturday, March 21 starting at 8:30a at the Eden United Church of Christ (903 North Second Street, Edwardsville). The training is a full day course and will end at approximately 4:30p. Lunch will not be provided so please bring a lunch or visit a local establishment.

All Scoutmasters and Assistants must complete Boy Scout leader indoor training and Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills to be fully trained for their positions. Please encourage those in your troop that are not fully trained to take advantage of the great training opportunities available. Additionally, this training is also an excellent opportunity to meet other Scout leaders and share activities and ideas. 


Youth Protection Training

Calling all units! Remember, every adult leader in your unit needs youth protection training to re-charter!  The training is available 24/7 in e-learning at myscouting.org.  The training must be renewed every two years, so check your own status and ask other leaders to review their training, as well.  Re-chartering will more likely be a smooth, easy process if all unit leaders have their appropriate training completed and up-to-date!

Roundtable
Monthly gathering of Scouters from throughout the District sharing information and ideas about activities, projects, outings, and other Scout related topics. Each month, discuss the upcoming monthly themese of Scouting, explore through resource lists, invited speakers, group discussions, and hands-on activities. The aim of the Scouting Roundtable is to provide the will and the skill to do. If unit leaders have these two things, they can succeed, and continue to do so. The will to do in the form of morale, inspiration, enthusiasm, and vision is distributed regularly. The skill to do in the form of skills, program ideas, techniques, and information is taught a piece at a time. In sum, a roundtable is fun, practical, inspiring, full of skills, loaded with techniques, and brimming with program ideas.
