volunteer & Leadership training

Volunteer and help our Scouts!

Parents are the lifeblood of our pack. Without you, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. We need volunteers of varying skills!

Steps to Register as a Leader:

Talk to a current leader about your willingness to help

Let the Cubmaster or Committee Chair know you have completed these.

Specific Leadership Training

There are many training opportunities for leaders in Scouts BSA. Rather your a Cubmaster or den leader, please take the training so you'll be more prepared!

Online courses found on my.scouting.org 

(Cubmaster/ Asst CM, Den Leader, Pack Committee or Committee Chair)

In Person Classes

Visit the Atlanta Area Council Training site for in person training. These usually take place on a Saturday at the Atlanta Area Council VSC in Smyrna and you will be able to fulfil the leader training in one day. 

You will get more out of in person training, meet other leaders around the Atlanta Area and crowd source for lots of info and ideas to help you in your position!

Other Training for Cub Scout Leaders:

BALOO - Basic Outdoor Leader Outdoor Orientation

Cub Scout leaders who are interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities are required to have at least one BALOO trained adult on every Cub Scout den or pack overnight outdoor event – including Pack Camping and Webelos Den overnighters.
