Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader

Sounds simple enough, but with our busy lives ... it is far from easy.

The GLAAC Training Team is here to ensure that leaders are offered every opportunity to get the training they require, and that our youth deserves.

We will offer:

  1. classroom training for those who do not wish to use, or have problems with the BSA online training at my.scouting.org.
  2. outdoor training such as BALOO, OWLS, and IOLS.
  3. regular advanced leadership training like NYLT and Wood Badge.

In order to accomplish these goals, we will offer:

  1. Leadership Laurels on Quarterly Basis.
  2. Spring and Fall Wood Badge Courses.
  3. Weeklong, Weekend, and Winter Break NYLT.
