One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people is trained leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting. For this reason, the Orange County Council is committed to provide top quality training for Scouters – leaders, parents and Scouts at the unit, district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.
