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.

Sweetwater Adult Leader Recognition Banquet
February 29th @ 6:30 PM
Scouting is built on the time and dedication of it’s volunteer leadership. Our annual banquet is an opportunity to gather for a nice meal, and say “Thanks!” to those outstanding adult leaders who work so hard to make Sweetwater “Simply The Best!”.
This year we will be honoring 29 Scouters from 20 different Packs and Troops in Sweetwater District, and you are invited to come and help us thank them. Please spread the word and bring all of the other leaders from your Pack or Troop, as well as spouses or significant “others”. The cost is less than a Saturday evening meal at your favorite restaurant in most cases, so put on your tan shirts and call it a Scouting Date Night!
The banquet will begin at 6:30 PM with drinks and Hors D’ouvers. Dinner will be served at 7:00 PM.
