Super Saturday Training - Cub Training THIS SATURDAY and Scouts BSA Training Oct 19th, 2019

Cub Training This Saturday & Scouts BSA Training Oct 19th
 
Trained leaders are critical to the success of Scouting. Every young person involved in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun. Trained leaders are more effective at delivering the promise of Scouting because they understand their role, responsibilities, and the resources available to them. To achieve that responsibility Button-Gwinnett will be hosting in-person position specific training for Cubmaster, Den Leader, Pack Committee, Scoutmaster, Troop Committee, and Merit Badge Counselor. Each class limited to 40 people. If you register by 9/1 there will be no cost associated, $5 registration after 9/1/19 per class. This will be done at  Peachtree Corners Ward: 5995 Spalding Dr, Norcross, GA 30092. There are two registration links below, one for each program. If there are any questions please contact our new District Training Chair, Devin Mills at 321-431-0864 or mills.devin@hotmail.com.
