Required Training

There are three courses required by the BSA to be a Scout Leader, but there are many more that you can take and should if you have the time. These other courses are taught by the District and by the NCAC and are listed in the district calendar. Every position requires New Leader Essentials and SM or ASM requires IOLS or Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. Committe Members must take the Committe Challange course and ALL leaders need Youth Protection Training or YPT
 

Round Table meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at Leesburg United Methodist Church at 7:30 PM
