Be the Change, Lead the Change
What is Woodbadge?
Scouting’s founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, created Wood Badge in 1919 as the premier training course for Scoutmasters.
Today, Wood Badge offers all servant leaders the skills and tools necessary to be the best servant leader you can be, whether you are involved in Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, or Exploring.
Who should attend?
Wood Badge is designed to meet the advanced servant leadership needs of all Scouters. To attend a Wood Badge course, individuals must:
Be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America and age 18 or older.
Have completed the basic position-specific training courses for their Scouting role.
Be capable of functioning safely in an outdoor environment. All staff and participants are required to complete Parts A, B, and C of the Annual Health and Medical Record form (available at www.scouting.org).
Why should I attend?
By participating in a WoodBadge course, Scouters will acquire valuable tools such as listening, communicating, conflict management, project planning, and leading change.
Participants will better learn to understand and appreciate diversity and differences in our society. They will learn skills that will make them a better scouter.
Units with trained servant leaders can deliver an improved program and a more meaningful experience for the youth Scouting serves. By practicing your new knowledge and skills, you will become a more effective servant leader.
In addition, to your own personal growth, the scouts you serve will benefit most from your developmental commitment.
