Are you a new Scouting leader? Your first steps are to take your Youth Protection Training, then choose a learning path in the BSA Learn Center and spend a little time with the material. It is divided into short, easy segments and allows you to train at your own pace. Once you're done, sign up for outdoor leader training- BALOO for Cub Leaders, or IOLS for Scouts BSA leaders. Sweetwater District schedules one of each class annually but you can always get trained in any district or council. (There are many opportunities locally). The Sweetwater "Adult Leader Resources" page will give you links to get started.

If you are a unit leader- This is how someone finds your Pack or Troop. Having your correct information can make the difference in whether someone contacts you or the unit down the road. The unit pin is the point of contact. When someone is interested in your unit, they read about your program, your meeting times and other pertinent information. Then if they are interested, they click the link to contact you. Is your unit pin up-to-date? Key3 Leadership must make the changes, so if you are a Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, or Chartered Org. Rep.- This step by step guide will walk you through the process.
