University of Scouting

Welcome to the University of Scouting

Thank you, for your interest in courses at the 2017 University of Scouting! Your leadership through training is a key part of what makes the Scouting program great.

Whether you are training for your current role or learning something new, we’ve got a great line-up of classes for you. You’ll notice a few changes this year. We have extended sessions to allow for more participant interaction and to ensure you reach your classes on time. We are also including some topics requested by older youth. So, be sure to register your older Boy Scouts and Venturers, too! The Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops and Crews (ILST & ILSC) classes were a hit last year, and are likely to fill up soon.

Beyond a day of great training, the University of Scouting offers opportunities for you to network and share stories and ideas with like-minded Scouters. Stop by the Myers Center Café for a free cup of coffee (or tea) and check out the information about programs in the Piedmont Council.

Yours in Scouting,

Amy B. Green
Chair, 2017 University of Scouting
