Cub Scouting’s volunteer leaders work with boys and their families to improve their communities by enriching the lives of the families who live there.  They take in active part in helping to strengthen families and their boys by providing a fun-filled, worthwhile program that teaches values.

The Pack leadership team consists of the Cubmaster, Assitant Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Den Leaders, Assistant Den Leaders and Committee members.  All of these people are adult volunteers.  All leaders of Cub Scout Pack 155 are registered with the Boy Scouts of America and have completed Youth Protection training. All have completed or are working on the required training for their positions which, in addition to Youth Protection Training, include This is Scouting and position specific training.

Leadership Qualifications

Adult citizens, or adult non citizens, who reside within the country, may register with the Boy Scouts of America in any capacity if they agree to abide by the Scout Oath or Promise and the Scout Law, to respect and obey the lays of the United States of America, and to subscribe to the precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle.  All leaders must be 21 years of age or older, except Assistant Cubmasters, Assistant Webelos Den Leaders, and Assistant Den Leaders, who must be 18 or older.  No one may register in more than one position in the same unit, except the Chartered Organization Representative (who can multiple only as the committee chairman or a committee member) and the ScoutParent Unit Coordinator (who may multiple as a Chartered Organization Representative, Assistant Den Leader, Assistant Webelos Den Leader and leader of 11-year-old Scouts).  — Adult Application, No. 524-501A

Leadership Selection

The Boy Scouts of American takes great pride in the quality of our adult leadership.  Being a leader in the BSA is a privilege, not a right.  The quality of the program and the safety of our youth members call for high-quality adult leaders.  We work closely with our chartered organizations to help recruit the best possible leaders for their units.

The adult application requests background information that should be checked by the unit committee or the chartered organization before accepting an applicant for unit leadership.  While no current screening techniques exist that can identify every dangerous person, we can reduce the risk of accepting a dangerous person by learning all we can about an applicant for a leadership position — his or her experience with children, why he or she wants to be a scout leader, and what discipline techniques he or she would use.

Youth protection training is required of all Adult Leaders and they are required to refresh their Youth Protection training every 24 months.

Leader Meetings

In order for a Cub Scout Pack to be successful, communication among the leaders is necessary.  To foster this the leaders meet one Tuesday per month to review previous events and activities as well as to plan future meetings, activities  and events. Additionally, pack leaders are encouraged to attend the monthly District Roundtable meetings where district updates, leadership training and idea sharing on various Cub Scout topics take place.
