Adult Volunteers

Scouting would not be possible without the many adult volunteers who keep Troop 451 running.

Adult Training Opportunities

Troop 451 is very committed to having adult volunteers trained so that, like the Scouts, they can “Be Prepared” to fill their roles, and “Do Their Best” in those roles. A variety of training courses are offered both online and live by Scouting volunteers in Durham County and adjoining counties and councils.

There are several different types of training available:

Many of the BSA’s courses are available online using your account.   Live training is usually scheduled on weekends. Occasionally, training will be a few hours on a weeknight.  These courses are usually organized by the district or council and are listed on the district calendar.

As part of Troop 451’s commitment to having trained leaders, the troop will reimburse you for all training fees and costs for live training (there is no cost for online training) provided you complete the course.  We just need you to take the time to take and complete the training.

For those who want to move beyond the basic level of training, advanced Wood Badge training occupies two weekends.  Training is also offered to adults during our summer camps.
