15 What does it mean when we say: “a Scout-led troop”? “Empowering scouts to be leaders”- this is the core of ScoutingScouts taking responsibility for their activities and achievements
16 What does it mean for us?Opportunity to make plan, organize and make decisionsAn environment to practice how to lead othersA chance to make mistakes and learn from our mistakesAllows us to learn how to teach others to be successfulLearn the importance of working as a teamGives us a chance to be creativeOpportunity to direct and run an organizationLeadership is a position of responsibility; not authority
17 Our responsibility (Scouts): Attend and participate in our weekly meetings and monthly campoutsRespect one another and allow our fellow scouts to leadTake responsibility for our actionsProvide solutionsBe part of planning and executing of our eventsVolunteer to help, organize and run our eventsHonor our commitmentsHelp one another at all times
18 The way we lead: A Boy Scout troop is a small democracy. Under the Scoutmaster's direction:Scouts are formed into patrolsplan 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.
19 “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
