Wood Badge N3-368-20
WHAT IS WOODBADGE?: Reflecting the best of nearly a century of Scouting experience, Wood Badge draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles and successful organizations through- out the country.
Wood Badge training was begun by Baden Powell in 1919 as a way to insure that the leaders of Scout troops were properly trained. Since then Wood Badge has been held world- wide, providing advanced leadership training to thousands of Scout leaders.
Wood Badge builds upon the best traditions and experiences of the Boy Scouts of America and also draws from a wide range of courses within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to present the latest in leadership theory and team development.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?: Wood Badge is designed to meet the advanced leadership needs of all Scouters, particularly unit level Scouters, such as Cub leaders, Scoutmasters and assistants, Venturing Crew Advisors, Committee Chairs and members. Additionally Scouters serving at the district and council levels can achieve greater effectiveness through Wood Badge. It has been updated and refreshed for 2020 and previous participates who have taken wood badge before can enjoy the experience again
WHY ATTEND?: By taking Wood Badge, Scouters will acquire valuable tools that will be useful not only in Scouts but in the workplace and at home. Participants will better learn to understand and appreciate diversity and differences in our society. They will learn skills that will make them a better Scout leader. Units with trained leaders are able to deliver an improved program and a more meaningful experience for the youth Scouting serves. By attending Wood Badge, the participants will internalize the 5 themes of Wood Badge: Living the Values, Growing, Connecting, Guiding, Empowering.
QUALIFICATIONS: Each participant must be a registered adult leader and have completed Youth Protection Training and the Leader Specific Training appropriate to his/her position in Scouting.
