Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader

The National Capital Area Council Islamic Committee on Scouting in association with NAMAS is providing training for Scout Leaders (of all faiths) for the following courses November 12th-13th. Leaders who complete these courses will be provided a trained certificate and patch to provide to their Unit/District Training Chairs. Individuals interested may register here.

Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. Along with Scoutmaster Specifics this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Scout Teams, in order to be considered “trained”.
