Become a Volunteer Today!

Scouting is a volunteer-led program.  Parents and the organizations who charter (sponsor) Scouting groups select the leaders who they would like to work with their children.  Since youth safety is an important concern, all leaders in the Tidewater Council must complete an application, be background checked, and annually complete Youth Protection Training. Training specific to the position is also required to ensure that we are providing the best possible program to youth in our area.

Scout Leaders have the opportunity to work with young people and their families, improving your community by enriching participants’ lives through fun-filled, worthwhile programs that teach values. By making the commitment to serve as a leader, you can help make a positive difference in the kind of adults they will become and build a better future for our nation.

Many tools are available to assist unit leaders be effective and enjoy their experience including training, monthly workshops (known as roundtables), and printed and online literature.
