Intro to Outdoor Leader SkillsIntroduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) Training is critical to the success of the Scouting program. This hands-on training provides adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to plan, execute, and enjoy a successful and fun outdoor program. In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and engaging Scouting programs.

IOLS is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters in order to be considered trained. Completion of this course, along with Youth Protection and Scoutmaster Specific trainings, will enable direct contact leaders to be rechartered in your unit as a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster. This training is also recommended Troop Committee members and other volunteers looking to be more involved with their troop.

District Award of Merit

The District Award of Merit is a council award presented by districts in the same manner that the Silver Beaver is a national award presented by councils.  It recognizes Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. Download Application Here

Unit Leader Award of Merit

Quality unit leadership is the key to a quality unit program — and it leads to better Scout retention.  Statistics show that if young people stay engaged in the program for at least five years, the BSA’s influence likely will stay with them for the rest of their lives.  A quality Scouting experience will help keep Scouts in the program, and the Boy Scouts of America created the Unit Leader Award of Merit to recognize the quality unit leaders who make that happen.
