Wood Badge is an advanced leadership course designed for all adult Scouters. Ideally, every Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing adult leader, as well as council, district, and church youth leaders will take a Wood Badge course within two years of becoming a Scouter. By becoming better trained Scouters and leaders, we can better serve Scouting and our youth. Based on the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law, the Values, Mission and Vision of Scouting, and the principles of servant leadership, Wood Badge draws from a wide range of sources within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to present the latest in leadership theory and team development.
World-class Wood Badge topics include:
Values, Mission & Vision
Communication & Listening to Learn
Valuing People & Diversity
Coaching & Mentoring
Stages of Team Development
Leading & Teaching EDGE
Problem Solving & Decision Making
Leaving a Legacy
...and much more!
