Your Monmouth Council Training Committee exists to help you. We provide training resources that will enable you to provide an effective and high-quality Scouting program for your youth members Our job is training leaders. Every youth member deserves a trained leader!

This page is dedicated to the basic things a leader should do to be trained.

These are your first steps. Most of your basic training can be completed online; however, check the Council calendars to see when these trainings are done in or near your community. These trainings are enhanced by the personal touch of an experience leader trainer and the sharing from other new leaders.
