Boy Scout Leader Fast Start

Fast Start Training provides an immediate comfort level for new leaders, enabling them to say, "I can do this!". Fast Start training is the first step for any new volunteer and should be delivered immediately and preferably before meeting with any youth member. Cub Scout Fast Start Video Tapes and Viewing Guides are available to all new volunteers from the Council Service Center.

The Boy Scout Fast Start video includes the following segments:

  • "The Troop Meeting" This is the primer on how to run a troop meeting. Produced for new unit leaders and commissioners, the video covers planning, parts of the meeting, the patrol method, and resources.
  • "The Outdoor Program" Running a troop meeting is one thing; running a successful outdoor activity is another. This program goes into planning, organization, ideals, and BSA policy for outdoor activities. It also touches on long-term and high-adventure activities.
  • "The Troop Organization" This program starts with the charter concept -- the chartered organization, the district, and the council, and their relationship to the troop. Each leadership and committee position is described. This is an excellent program for commissioners, troop committees, troop leaders, and chartered organizations.
