|What is Wood Badge?||
Wood Badge for the 21st Century is an adult leader training program providing leadership
training that you will use in your unit as well as in personal relationships.
It is designed to give Scouters the tools they need to provide the highest quality scouting
experience for the youth in their units.
It is based on contemporary leadership and team building concepts in use in American business, and is designed for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders, as well as District and Council leaders.
Many companies have recognized the value of this training to their employees and agree to pay the course fees and/or give time off as part of their employee’s professional development. We have prepared letters to employers that describes the contemporary theories behind the leadership skills developed in Wood Badge. One letter describes the value of the course for educators; one letter describes the value of the course for business employees.
The two weekends of the course start the learning and culminate in a mentored application of what was learned benefiting both Scouting and yourself. Upon completion the Scouter earns those “two tiny wooden beads” that you see worn by many other Scouters.
Wood Badge has been described as “life changing”, “the best thing I have ever done”, “important”, and oddly enough – FUN.
