Leadership is a vital part of the Scouting program. Scouts in positions of leadership run the troop. They take care of the many tasks necessary for troop and patrol meetings and activities to run smoothly. By accepting the responsibilities of troop leadership, Scouts are preparing themselves to be leaders throughout their lives.

The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops 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. This is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Scouts and is a prerequisite for Scouts to participate in the National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). Scouts should be First Class and above. If you have Scouts that have already taken this course, it could serve as review for a new position.
A Scoutmaster or ASM should attend with their Scouts and are invited to be part of the training. Course is led by Scoutmaster Grant Evans and ASM Arnold Feintuck.

Den Chief Training is also being offered — held during but separate from the ILST Course. Limited to 10 Scouts. Course is led by Scoutmaster, Susie Flaherty
