3 Training boy leaders to run their troop is the Scoutmaster's most important job. Train Scouts to do a job, then let them do it. Never do anything a boy can do. Robert S. S. Baden-Powell
4 Mission Statement The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
5 Life Skills in a Values-Based Environment Scouting is a values-based program with its own code of conduct. The Scout Oath and Law help instill the values of good conduct and honesty. A boy who spends one year in a Scout troop will learn lifetime skills. He will learn basic outdoor skills, self-reliance, and how to get along with others. Scouting will prepare him to live a more productive and fulfilling life.
6 Scouting offers young people a rich and varied arena in which to learn and use leadership skills. Among the challenges encountered by a troop's youth leaders are Organizing patrols Using duty rosters Planning menus and figuring food costs Encouraging advancement Guiding a patrol's involvement in problem solving Teaching outdoor skills Helping to ensure patrol safety during outings Handling patrol finances Helping other Scouts make the most of their own leadership opportunities
7 Troop Leadership Training (TNT) is Scoutmasterdirected training divided into three Parts: Part One Introduction to Leadership (Know). Conducted within a week of a Scout's acceptance of his new position, this session focuses on what a leader must know. Part Two How to Fulfill Your Role (Be). This session on how to fulfill the role's responsibilities focuses on what a leader must be. Part Three What Is Expected of Me? (Do). This session focuses on what a leader must do.
8 Part One Know 1. The Boy-Led Troop and Living the Scout Oath and Law
9 What does it mean when we say a boy-led troop? The BSA's definition is that empowering boys to be leaders is the core of Scouting. A Boy Scout troop is a small democracy. With the Scoutmaster's direction, the boys are formed into patrols, plan the troop's program, and make it a reality.
10 Troops find success by utilizing the following: Troop calendar Troop meetings Troop activities Patrol leaders' council Public service Outdoor activities
11 Part One Know 1. The Boy-Led Troop and Living the Scout Oath and Law 2. Discussion of a Boy-Led Patrol
12 The patrol method is not a way to operate a Boy Scout troop, it is the only way. Unless the patrol method is in operation, you don't really have a Boy Scout troop. Robert S. S. Baden-Powell
13 There are three types of patrols: Regular patrols New-Scout patrols Venture patrols The object of the patrol method is not so much saving the Scoutmaster trouble as to give responsibility to the boy. Robert S. S. Baden-Powell
