University of Scouting this Week (1/13/18)!

From an email to Cub Leaders, but it applies to all scouting volunteers equally well:

Crossroads of America Council
Boy Scout of America
Dear Cub Scout Leaders:
The Crossroads of America Council’s premier training event will bring together Scout leaders from across Indiana to share their knowledge and learn more skills to share and guide the future leaders of our nation.
There are over 30 specific courses for Cub Scout Leaders from “Making a Keepsake Arrow” to how to put on a world class “Pinewood Derby” from the nationally recognized 2017 Riley 500 Pinewood Derby team.  If you are a new Cub Scout Leader, turn to page 16 of the catalog for an easy reference to picking out your courses for the day. This one day training will answer hundreds of your Who, What, Where, When and How Do They Do It questions.  Cub Leaders will have the opportunity of taking a wide range of classes during the day (day-long training) on January 13 at Warren Central High School, 9500 E 16th St., Indianapolis.

The University is also the training grounds for the newly appointed members of the Pack/Troop/Crew committees.  Additionally, unit leaders and all Scout volunteers find an exciting array of courses.
Spend the day with us!  Take basic training for every position in the pack.  Take advanced training for specialized tasks, such as Advancement Chair.  Take hands-on classes like Woodworking or Leatherworking.  Check out your opportunities at the link below.  We think you’ll be glad you did!
