CUB SCOUT PACK 141

Volunteers — Join The Team

Follow Us On


Cub Scout Pack 141 leaders are at least 21 years of age, approved by the Chartered Organization, and registered as an adult volunteer leader of the BSA. In order to be considered fully trained in their position as a direct care leader, leaders are required to complete a series of trainings, which includes: Youth Protection Training and Leader Position-Specific Training, and a supplemental training called This Is Scouting. Once completed, these trainings will provide each direct contact leader with all of the skills and tools necessary to be effective and successful leaders. Every den is required to have a registered den leader. Every pack is required to have a minimum number of registered adult volunteers in order to be considered a pack.

Trained leaders know how to use the available resources to provide an exciting and worthwhile program for the boys. Trained leaders also have confidence in carrying out their roles and responsibilities. As a result, Cub Scouts receive a program designed to achieve Scouting's aims of citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness.

All our leaders volunteer their time, have a great concern for the Pack’s success, and the growth of our scouts. Every attempt is made to have a two deep leadership for every eight to ten scouts in a den. We feel that this will provide a safe environment for each scout and allow him to get the individual attention he requires to advance. We want our scouts to be as safe as possible, and for the parents to know and feel that their sons are well cared for. There is a shortage of volunteers in our Pack. In order for our Pack to grow and become successful, we need your help. We need more volunteers to help with Pack meetings, Den meetings, special events, and other scout functions. It is a worthwhile venture and your son will appreciate the effort that you give to be an important part of his life.

Currently, all leaders are required to take Youth Protection, Den Leader Position-Specific Training in order to be classified as Fully Trained and to remain on the pack roster at re-charter time. This Is Scouting is an optional training but one that is highly recommended.

These trainings are not just limited to registered leaders only; any adult partner, parent, or guardian that would like to go through the training is welcomed to take the courses. It is all online, so you can complete them in the comfort of your own home.

Through the E-LEARNING COURSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM found online, adult volunteer leaders can complete all of the training needed to be considered fully trained in their positions. The E-Learning Course Management System is now located at https://my.scouting.org For those volunteers who have use the old training management system before, their current user name and password works at the new location. Once logged in, training courses can be found by selecting the “Home” button in the upper left corner, then “My Dashboard” in the menu list. It will default to the “My Training” section and from there you will be able to select the required training.
