What is a Scout-led Troop?
Scouts taking responsibility for their activities and achievements “Empowering scouts to be leaders” - this is the core of Scouting What does it mean when we say: “a Scout-led troop”?
Leadership is a position of responsibility; not authority What does it mean for us? Opportunity to make plan, organize and make decisions An environment to practice how to lead others A chance to make mistakes and learn from our mistakes Allows us to learn how to teach others to be successful Learn the importance of working as a team Gives us a chance to be creative Opportunity to direct and run an organization
Our responsibility (Scouts): Attend and participate in our weekly meetings and monthly campouts Respect one another and allow our fellow scouts to lead Take responsibility for our actions Provide solutions Be part of planning and executing of our events Volunteer to help, organize and run our events Honor our commitments Help one another at all times
. The way we lead: A Boy Scout troop is a small democracy. Under the Scoutmaster's direction: –Scouts are formed into patrols –plan the troop's program – …and make it a reality “The patrol method is not a way to operate a Boy Scout troop, it is the only way. Unless the patrol method is in operation, you don't really have a Boy Scout troop.” —Robert S. S. Baden-Powell
“The object of the patrol method is not so much saving the Scoutmaster trouble as to give responsibility to the scout.” —Robert S. S. Baden-Powell
Success by empowering the Scouts Organize and run the Troop meetings Organize and run the Troop activities Utilize the Patrol leaders' council Plan the Troop calendar Plan and execute Public service activities Plan Outdoor activities to learn and develop skills Remember ……..Scouting is 75% outing
Adult Responsibility in a Scout-led Troop…

“What is EDGE™?” EDGE™ is the method you will use to teach in your troop. The key to making EDGE™ work is to use it for all teaching opportunities. Make it a habit. Explain—The trainer explains how something is done. Demonstrate—After the trainer explains, the trainer demonstrates while explaining again. Guide—The learner tries the skill while the trainer guides him through it. Enable—The trainee works on his own under the watchful eye of the trainer. The trainer’s role in this step is to remove any obstacles to success, which enables the learner to succeed.
