10 2010--youth and leader training ppp

  1. 1. For Young Men, Scouts & Their Leaders
  2. 2. 3-4 How to Use this Presentation 5 BP—“The patrol method…” 6 BP—Most Important Quotes 7-8 Rules 9 Scouts and Young Men’s Organization Org Chart…not really as scary as at first glance 10-11 Patrol Leader / Quorum Presidency Meeting agenda 12 PLC (Patrol Leaders’ Council) / YM Committee Meeting agenda 13-15 Yearly Planning Meeting agenda 16 BYC Meeting agenda 17-18 Troop Committee Meeting agenda 19-23 Planning Activities for a Month 24-26 Patrol Method, Aaronic Priesthood Program…adult and youth leader responsibilities 27-28 Resources 2
  3. 3. The intent of the presentation is that it will be used as a training tool either on the stake or ward level to help youth and their leaders to implement the Patrol Method of Scouting and mesh it with the Ward Young Men’s Program. The TLT (Troop Leadership Training should be presented shortly after this session, but tweaked to fit the LDS Scouting program). The “rules” slides are set up assuming that the course is taught to the Youth leaders with the adult leaders in attendance, taking notes, and having little input. Time should be given to the adults for questions and answers and other discussion immediately after the session or another time soon after the presentation. (cont next slide) 3
  4. 4. A disc is included with this training kit that includes this presentation. It also contains sample agendas for each meeting described that can be copied and used as is, or adjusted to meet your needs. If you are presenting this training you will find it helpful to have an agenda to hand out. The information takes about 2 hours to present and an agenda will help avoid running out of time. It is assumed that the agendas will be printed and given to the boys in a notebook or binder of some kind and that they will take notes right on the pages. It is also VERY helpful to have a couple of breaks with hands- on, competitive, scouting oriented activities as well as some scout songs…especially repeat songs. 4
  5. 5. “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 5
  6. 6. “Training boy leaders to run their troop is the Scoutmaster's most important job.” “Train Scouts to do a job, then let them do it.” “Never do anything a boy can do.” —Robert S. S. Baden-Powell 6
  7. 7.  Adults  Keep comments to a minimum.  “When I was (fill in the blank)…” stories are not allowed.  “When my kid was (fill in the blank)…” stories are not allowed.  “In my old (troop, ward, life, etc.)…” stories are not allowed.  All other stories are not allowed.  Ask questions concerning the youth and their perspective, but only if really, very important.  Take notes.  Consider a separate training for adults. 7
  8. 8.  Youth  Participate.  Ask questions, make suggestions, whatever, but…  Raise your hand.  Oh, and it’s ok for you to take notes too…right on the pages of your booklet if you want to. It’s yours. 8
  9. 9. 9
  10. 10. PL Meetings for each patrol (should be concurrent with the Quorum Presidency Meeting) monthly  Purpose  Come up with ideas for activities, merit badges, etc.  Review needs and progress of each member of the quorum/patrol.  11-yr old patrol  Set dates for the 3 campouts that are allowed for in the Scouting Section of the General Handbooks of Instructions  Set dates for day camp, if the stake does not offer one . The church has a guidebook and patches for 11-yr old scouting day camps.  Set dates for other advancement programs and special events. 10
  11. 11.  Attending—Quorum Presidency members, including the secretary, Patrol Leader, Asst Patrol Leader, other patrol leaders/officers, Asst. Scout Master over that patrol  should have already gotten ideas from the patrol members of things they want to do and things they need to do…advancement, merit badges , etc.  Conducting—Quorum President or Patrol Leader  Presiding—ranking quorum presidency member. 11
  12. 12.  CAUTION: The PLC meeting should have minimal adult interaction!  Can be concurrent with the YM Committee Meeting.  Purpose  PLC—review, approve and calendar activities and other planning proposed by the patrols.  YM Committee—in addition to PLC business, the bishop gives training, makes assignments, takes reports, etc.  Attending—Bishopric, YM President, Scout Master, Scout Leader for 11-yr old patrol, SPL, all Patrol Leaders, Quorum Presidents (if YM Committee meeting, the 11-yr old PL and Leader are released after Scouting business is finished).  Presiding  If PLC, the ranking quorum presidency member.  If YM Committee, Bishopric member.  Conducting  SPL if the meeting is only a PLC.  Bishop if the meeting is a YM Committee Meeting. He should give significant time to the SPL to conduct Troop business. 12
  13. 13.  Purpose  Decide on and schedule Big Events for the year  Decide on and schedule Annual Events  Decide on and schedule Scout Camp  Decide on Merit Badges to be worked on and when  Decide on Monthly topics  Decide on how to execute Courts of Honor, Troop Meetings, etc.  Schedule other meetings  Youth leaders should come knowing what rank each young man in his quorum or patrol is and what merit badges each needs, especially Eagle- required. 13
  14. 14.  Attending  All YM & Scout Leaders…adult & youth  including 11-yr old patrol leaders  can invite all the young men. That can make it cumbersome and hard to make decisions, but you will have everyone’s input.  Conducting  SPL for Scouts, along with ranking A/P Leader for YM  May need to break off older boys, depending on their involvement in scouts and the maturity levels of the groups  It is very handy if the Troop leaders are also the Quorum leaders.  Presiding—Bishopric member or ranking priesthood leader (i.e. Teachers Quorum President, Deacons Quorum President, bishopric member, etc.) 14
  15. 15.  NOTE:  The youth need to do as much as possible  Adults are there for support and encouragement and to answer questions  Adults are also there to help figure out how to make activities happen rather than why they can’t happen  The activity plan should be presented to the Bishop in BYC by the Senior Patrol Leader. Again, it is handy if the Troop leaders are the quorum leaders  After the activities are approved they should be presented to the Troop Committee  Scout leaders and the Troop Committee should work up a budget proposal based on the results of the planning meeting 15
  16. 16.  Purpose  Planning Mutual activities  Bishop approves YM & YW activities, including Scout activities  Bishop makes assignments to the youth  Bishop gives instruction and counsel  Attending—Bishop or his counselor, Aaronic Priesthood Quorum Presidents, YW Class Presidents, YM President, YW President, others as invited  Presiding—Ranking Bishopric member  Conducting—one of the Priests Quorum President’s Assistants or the Laurels Class President 16
  17. 17.  Must have a minimum of 3 members to meet charter requirements  Purpose  Make assignments to committee members and establish subcommittees needed to make the scout program work successfully; namely Advancement, Activities and Special Events , others as needed.  Review, approve and schedule activities which have been planned in the PLC and approved by the bishopric.  Secure camp sites, rooms, cultural hall, etc. needed for activities and events.  Arrange adults for campouts and other activities to uphold 2- deep requirements.  Decide how to help bring the events and activities that the youth have planned come to fruition. 17
  18. 18.  Purpose (cont)  Review the needs of individual scouts.  Keep up with financials and advancement.  Plan training.  Plan the annual fund raiser.  Arrange for Boards of Review.  Attending—Chair person, Chartered Organization Rep (Bishopric member), Unit Commissioner (as invited), Primary President (or designee), YM President, Scout Master, Asst Scout Masters, SPL (as invited), other committee members.  Conducting—Committee Chair.  Presiding—Bishopric member (if present) or Chair 18

If it is not approved, you can tweak it there, or you have time to plan an alternate. If approved, make assignments at that time. May need further tweaking. 23
  24. 24.  In Scouting and YM’s, the youth are the leaders. They preside. They have the keys. They are in charge.  Adult Leaders’ Responsibilities in BOTH programs  GET YOURSELF TRAINED  Get your youth trained  Teach them HOW to lead  LET them lead  Teach them how to follow through and how to make things happen  Guide from behind…yours is a shadow leadership  Provide resources, make their plans possible by kicking the roadblocks out of their path  Reward their success!
