"Train Scouts to do a job, then let them do it."

"Never do anything a boy can do."

Leadership is a vital part of the Scouting program. Scouts in positions of leadership run their patrols and the troop.  They take care of the many tasks necessary for troop meetings and activities to run smoothly and well.  By accepting the responsibilities of troop and patrol leadership, they are preparing themselves to be leaders throughout their lives.

Troop Leadership Training (TLT) is the first step in training boys to be leaders.  This is a program run jointly by the Senior Patrol Leader and the Scoutmaster.  The syllabus for this program may be purchased at the Scout Shop (Item #34306).
