One of the key factors in building a strong Scouting Unit is quality training. It is through training that Scout Leaders understand their specific responsibilities, learn from experienced Leaders, and gain motivation to continue.

Whether you are new to Scouting or a seasoned Scouter, we are here to meet your training needs. The Greater Los Angeles Area Council offers a continuum of training for all experience levels.

Trained leaders provide a quality, fun-filled program for Scouting units. When leaders understand Scouting, they are more effective in their roles.
