The most important thing you will do as a Scoutmaster is train your senior patrol leader and his counsel to be leaders. One way to do this is hold an Introduction Leadership Skills for Troops course (ILTS). Come get ideas for how to facilitate this in your unit. Gain tools to help you coach and mentor your youth leaders. “Every boy deserves a trained leader” applies to the boy leaders not just the adults.
