Q: What constitutes a fully trained Den Leader and what resources are available for new leaders?
A: Den Leaders (or Assistant Leaders) complete Youth Protection Training ("YPT") before they begin their leader roles. Leaders must also complete position-specific training, which is available on-line through my.scouting.org
. Once you have created a my.scouting.org account that includes your member ID number and your leadership role, you will find information here on all position-specific training requirements and on-line courses.
Please note that Youth Protection is absolutely mandatory (and quick). The other courses are required in order to be a fully trained leader - complete these and you will get a "trained" patch for your uniform and find yourself better prepared to lead your den. What is Pow-Wow?
The "Pow-Wow" is a once a year, all day training event where leaders you can take supplemental training to their experience easier and more rewarding.
