Trained leaders provide a quality Scouting program which helps keep youth interested and engaged in all that Scouting has to offer. Surveys have shown that units with 100% trained leadership are more likely to have quality programs and retain youth in their units. In order to recharter your crew or ship in 2012, all Venturing Advisors and Ship Skippers must have the proper training. In 2013, all registered leaders must have the proper training in order to recharter their crews/ships.
Requirements for all Venturing Advisors and Skippers to be fully trained by recharter 2012 and all contact leaders by recharter 2013.
