Chippewa District 2013 re-registration of counselors is now closed and we find the following subjects with no counselor: Farm Mechanics, Rowing, Surveying, and Truck Transportation. Subjects with only one counselor include: Landscape Architecture, Lifesaving, Skating, Sustainability, Welding, Whitewater, and Sculpture.
If you have the capability to counsel any of these subjects, please contact Pete Townsend [PGTScout@comcast.net].
All adult leaders, including MB Counselors are required to have a current Youth Protection Training certificate. During the recent re-registration, most counselors neglected to provide their current YPT date. If you wish to continue as a counselor your YPT date must be within the past 24 months. If it is not, please go to the on-line training section of scouting.org and take the training. Send a copy of your new certificate to Pete Townsend [PGTScout@comcast.net]
Today training is just as important as ever, as we all want to deliver the best, safest, and most meaningful Scouting experience as possible to every Scout. We often say “Every Boy Deserves a Trained Leader” and with good reason — when leaders are trained, they:
Better understand their position and their role in the unit.
Help Scouts advance by knowing the BSA programs.
Get a big picture view of the unit, the council, and Scouting.
Ensure safe activities by knowing BSA policies and guidelines.
Have more fun and feel empowered in their position!
A special Council Shoulder Patch is available to all leaders who complete the required trainings for their PRIMARY POSITION ONLY. Youth protection training must not expire in the current year. If you are already a trained leader, stop by any council office, confirm your records, and you can receive the FREE Council Shoulder Patch too.
