To do anything well, people need training, in whatever form that takes. Training may be formal or informal; it may help someone learn to ride a bicycle, drive a car, or perform better at a job. Training can be conducted in a group setting or individually. In the end, the result of high-quality training is a person's ability to do something new or better, and a feeling of satisfaction from the accomplishment.

Sign up today today for Scoutmaster Specific, Den Leader Specific, or Committee Member Specific Training.

Did you win big at your unit's race? Each unit needs to sign up their top cars.
