Adult Leaders

Scoutmaster
Each troop has an adult leader, the Scoutmaster, who is a volunteer registered with the Boy Scouts of America and BSA trained. The Scoutmaster is responsible for helping the Scouts with planning their yearly program and provide opportunities to advance in rank and complete merit badges.  (And have fun!)



Assistant Scoutmasters
Successful Troops also must have Assistant Scoutmasters to support the Scoutmaster. The adult leaders should only do those things that the scouts can not do themselves - driving, for example. The boys should be allowed to lead their own troop with minimal guidance as needed, depending on the maturity and abilities of the youth Scout leaders.
