Adult training opportunity - Woodbadge 2018

Posted by gghertel on Jan 12 2018 - 1:28am

SF Bay Area Council is holding Woodbadge training in 2018 in March and April. Woodbadge is the premiere leadership program for Scouting Worldwide, teaching a common set of principles and learning outcomes. Scout Leaders all over the world, identifiable wearing the Woodbadge beads, take this course to improve their understanding in areas beyond the basic Scout skills. Adult leaders of any type (ASMs or Committee positions, or any adult registered and "with an interest in leadership and Scouting") can take advantage of what is equivalent to business leadership training in teambuilding, planning, and other skills applicable in Scouting and in the corporate world. Interested? Please read after the break.

Youth 14-15 (but not yet 16) can apply for the CIT position (counselor in training,) which is a 2-3 week learning opportunity where you work at the camp while you learn about what is involved in staffing a Boy Scout summer camp. For 16 and older Scouts, including young adults, full term summer camp staff opportunities open. Interviews are in January and February for staff, March for CIT. More after the break.

Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for our members to financially commit to support our local council. Each month the San Francisco Bay Area Council spends about $70 on each scout to support their journey.  The council asks that you help them offset the costs and share the Scouting message by contributing a monthly donation of at least $20 (i.e. $240 for the year 2017) to Friends of Scouting.

ALL: You MUST complete recharter if you are continuing in 2018
