Any adult can be a counselor – you don’t have to be an assistant scoutmaster, and you don’t need to be an expert in the field. All you need to do is complete online Youth Protection Training (YPT) at http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection/BoyScout.aspx. Click on the “Take Course Online” under “Boy Scout Leader Youth Protection Training”. PRINT YOUR CERTIFICATE WHEN YOU FINISH YPT and bring your completed YPT certificate to the meeting. Then think about what merit badges you wish to counsel and attend one of our 2 Merit Badge Counselor Training sessions, June 8, 2015 or June 22, 2015 from 7-8pm in the Mt Pleasant Presbyterian school building. Contact ASM Bill Basco if you have any questions.

Citizenship in the Community & Citizenship in the World MB Workshops @ Scout Hut
Apr 22 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
I plan to run these in a condensed format with class meetings as well as individual assignments. Doing so will enable the scouts to progress through the requirements in roughly 7 weeks. Citizenship in the Community has several requirements for which the scouts will need to attend external sessions. This will include a Town Council meeting as well as a Q&A session with a local leader. These sessions will need to be scheduled based upon availability. As such, the actual class schedule will evolve over the next few weeks. That being said, I would like to offer the first class on Sunday, March 4th. The classes will meet once per week (excluding the weekends of Spring Break) and conclude by Sunday, April 22. The tentative schedule for class meetings is as follows: March 4th March 11th April 15th April 22nd (if necessary) Between these dates, we’ll have to schedule the Town Council meeting, a Q&A session with a local leader, and 8 volunteer hours.
