Den Chief Training & Intro to Leadership Skills for Troops
Den Chief Training
Scouts wishing to become den chief need to take this course. The module identifies den chief responsibilities and tasks and describes the den chief's relationship to the adult den leaders and how that relates to the den chief's activities with the den. After finishing the training, den chief candidates receive their certificate of completion.
Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST)
The purpose of the ILST course is to teach Scouts with leadership positions about their new roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help Scouts in leadership positions within their troop understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. ILST is the first course int he series of leadership training offered to Scouts and is a replacement for Troop Leadership Training. Completion of ILST is a prerequisite for Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership course National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).
