Adult Leadership Standards

The Trapper Trails Council remains committed to providing quality Scouting programs and service to our over 50,000 youth members and dedicated Scouting volunteers.

Today the resolution for proposed changes to the Adult Leadership Standards of the BSA was released. Additional information concerning the proposed resolution can be found at www.scoutingnewsroom.org. This resolution allows chartered organizations to select adult volunteer leaders without regard to sexual orientation, continuing Scouting’s longstanding policy of chartered organizations selecting their leaders. The change allows Scouting’s members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families. It also respects the right of religious chartered organizations to choose adult volunteer leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own.

Scouting is more important today than ever. It is the mission of the BSA and the council to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.  We appreciate and value our chartered partners who support and help us in this mission.
