Experience the ultimate in Scout leadership training. Wood Badge for the 21st Century is advanced leadership training that will provide you with the leadership skills to make a difference.
The tradition of Wood Badge continues. Thousands of Wood Badge trained Scouters have affected the lives of millions of America's youth. This course brings together leaders from all areas of Scouting - Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, and Venturing.
Wood Badge for the 21st Century draws from the best leadership models in America and applies them to training our youth on how to lead. You will live the magic of Scout leadership training as envisioned by the founder of Scouting, Lord Baden Powell.
There are two parts to Wood Badge training: learn and experience the training during two 3-day weekend sessions, and then apply the leadership skills in your Scouting position. This combination of practicing the skills with fellow participants and applying the skills in your Scouting position is incredibly effective.
A key area of the process is team development and learning to recognize the stages through which developing teams must pass. Participants learn to apply appropriate leadership strategies that enable teams to reach their highest levels of performance.
This course will help you understand the full values-based family of Scouting programs as well as discover ways to use the leadership skills to improve your personal and professional life.
Wood Badge gives leaders the skills they need to strengthen Scouting in meaningful ways and deliver a quality program to our youth.
Treat yourself to this adventure. You and the youth around you deserve it!
