Adult Leader Training


One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.

For this reason, the Hawkeye Area Council is committed to provide top quality training opportunities for leaders, parents and Scouts at the district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.

February 1, 2018 - Mandatory Youth Protection Training Update

Over the decades, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in developing training and policies designed to keep young people safe. These comprehensive policies were considered groundbreaking when they were developed and soon became the standard used by other organizations for safeguarding youth. But when it comes to the safety of children, our goal is to continually improve. Therefore, the BSA has recently released an updated version of Youth Protection Training. The new training modules provide fresh insights into the issues of youth protection, and introduce enhanced reporting procedures.    

Regardless of when they last completed YPT, or when their current YPT expires, ALL REGISTERED ADULT VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE THE NEW YPT2 TRAINING BY 1-October-2018.
