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.
