Becoming a Better Leader

photo of a boy scout.Leadership and confidence are critical to success in Scouting and life. The Middle Tennessee Council offers various training programs so you have the skills, the knowledge, and the experience it takes to help Scouts learn to make the most of their opportunities.

The training mandate will require top unit leaders – SMs, CMs, Varsity Coaches, Venturing Advisors, Skipper and Explorer Advisors – be fully “trained” for their registered position.

Upcoming Training


Diamond Level Trained Unit - Award of Excellence

 

The Middle Tennessee Council is now offering a new incentive for Units; the Trained Unit – Award of Excellence. The award is earned when a Unit brings their trained leader percentage up to 80% or higher. The percentage of 80% was decided upon instead of 100% for the purpose of helping Units that have Leaders who have quit, moved, or otherwise become unable to fulfill their duties as a Volunteer Leader during the course of the year.

A Unit that is able to achieve the Award of Excellence will receive a personal thank you letter from the Scout Executive, as well as be presented at Roundtable with a special certificate and a Diamond Level Streamer to hang from their standard. Diamond Units will be highlighted in Volunteer Hall, and listed in Jet Trails

These Units have trained at least 80% of their leaders
