Adult Leaders
Adult Leader. It's a term in Scouting that's been known to bring forth confusion because it's open to many different interpretations and definitions. For many the title of adult leader is used interchangably with the title of "Scouter". According to the BSA's Language of Scouting guide a Scouter is an adult that is registered member of the Boys Scouts of America who services in a volunteer or professional capacity. Well, it's that and more.

An adult leader can be many things to a Troop and our scouts. Most popularly the title of Adult Leader are given to the adults that volunteer for the Troop Committee or volunteer to be Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters. That's certainly appropriate but it's also the parent that takes that moment and helps point a scout in the right direction. Adults that give that moment of caring, no matter how big or small, provide the critical examples that boys need to help them formulate the best response to life's challenges.  Those are our adult leaders.

So the question still remains, What is an adult leader? This graphic published by the blog Bryan on Scouting in October 2013 puts a better picture to what a Scouter is (you can click on the graphic for a bigger picture).

In the Adult Leader pages you'll find information on our Troop's volunteer opportunities, training, and other resources to help you on your journey. Being a Scouter can be one of the most rewarding things you do. Just ask any one of our adults that keep coming back about their experiences.
