Training of youth and adult leaders is very important to the success of the Boy Scout Program. Adult training begins with Fast Start and Youth Protection Training. The next step is an introduction to Scouting called "This is Scouting" also available online.  This session is designed to acquaint you with the overall Scouting goals and organization.
Training continues with Leader Specific Training for the Scouting position that you are registered for. There are several training opportunities available in the Greater St. Louis Area Council.  Please consult the events calendar for a session that meets your schedule.

Video Resources are available at your local Scout Shop or through training Services.  Please click here for more details.

If you are interested in taking Varsity Training, contact your district training chairman for the next opportunity.
