Get a training EDGE

Want to improve your training skills? Then we have a course for you! Trainer’s EDGE is designed to help Scouters understand the EDGE (Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable) training model and gain self-confidence through hands-on training experiences. While it is a required train-the-trainer course for Wood Badge and NYLT staffs, it is also for other trainers wishing to enhance their training presentation skills.  Presenters of all levels and skills are welcome to attend. This training does not have an expiration date; practice makes for a more knowledgeable and experienced trainer. Participants will have the opportunity to be in front of a small group, which will offer feedback that will help improve skills as a trainer. Likewise, each person will provide the gift of feedback for other presenters in a positive, helpful way.

**EVERY PARTICIPANT MUST prepare a 10-12 minute presentation on a Scouting topic of your choice (including Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring), which will allow you to demonstrate the skills of a trainer.  This course will be held outdoors in one of the pavilions at camp.  Please bring your own lunch.

Registration will be online soon. Priority will be given to NYLT and Wood Badge Staff, since this is a requirement for staffing.

Course fee is $5

Location:  Hoyt Scout Reservation, 3 Marchant Rd, Redding, CT
