Roundtable is a meeting on the third Thursday of every month for Scout leaders and anybody wishing to learn more about Scouting and upcoming events. We highly encourage all Scouting leaders to come. There are breakouts sessions for each level of scouting and a general session for all to attend. The premise is to learn from other scouting leaders that have already been or are going through the program and ask the questions you may have. It is a great opportunity to find out what events are going on in the Council and District for units and their families.

Check Your Training

This is a friendly reminder to check your training. Log into (or sign up for) . Select My Training. It will take you to a page that will show you your YPT status. If your youth protection training expired or soon to be expire click the link to take you to the online training.

For position related training select either Training Center or Requirements.

Requirements section should show you the training that is completed or needs to completed for your position.

Training Center will bring you to a page where you can look up the training for, if not all, most leadership positions. This is a good idea if you have volunteered for a new position (and the paper work hasn´t been processed yet.) For example I just volunteer to lead my son’s Tiger Den. The paper work is being process for my new position as Den Leader. I have started training.

A good number of Riverside Scouters (this includes me) need to complete Hazardous Weather Training. It is under ¨Before First Outdoor Activity¨.

I challenge other Riverside Scouters to join me in completing Hazardous Weather Training.
