Troop 315 – Building leaders of today!
From the Scoutmaster’s Handbook:
“Empowering boys and girls to be leaders is the core of Scouting. Scouts learn by doing, and what they do is lead their patrols and their troop. The scouts themselves develop a troop program, then take responsibility for figuring out how they will achieve the goals. One of our most important challenges is to train youth leaders to run the troop by providing direction, coaching, and support. The scouts will make mistakes now and then and will rely upon the adult leaders to guide them. But only through real hands-on experience as leaders can scouts learn to lead.”
