EVERY SCOUT DESERVES A TRAINED LEADER

As we have just recruited hundreds of new families into the Scouting world, we want to make sure they have the best program possible.  To accomplish this, MTC Districts offer training for your leaders.  You can find training opportunities in your area at https://www.mtcbsa.org/CoursePrograms.  Also, all BSA required trainings are available online, and you can log in to your my.scouting.org page to access each of those.
