Council Basic Training Initiative Policy

In order to ensure that all youth in our Council receive the best Scouting program possible, the Executive Board of the Ozark Trails Council considers it imperative that all registered leaders become familiar with the Scouting program, how it works at the different levels and how to implement it, while making it fun and exciting for the youth of the program. All this is accomplished through leadership training.
