  • Formation and training of adult leaders to establish and administer effective Scouting Programs as youth ministry.

  • Maintain and update training materials in place and encourage trained leaders to use their training for more effective ministry to youth through scouting.
  • Assist NCCS committees in the development of specialized training and certification programs as requested.
