Core to succeeding with these responsibilities is the concept that every Cub Scout deserves a trained leader. Being a trained leader helps you deliver the program in a way that is effective and efficient with a focus on the core objectives for the boy. Becoming a trained leader requires completion of the following training:

  • Youth Protection
  • Leader Position-Specific

Both trainings are available online at and as an in-person training through your local council service center. Consult with your pack trainer or visit for training options. Leaders who have completed these two trainings qualify to wear the trained leader strip.
