Congratulations to the 2018 Trainer's Edge Participants

Congratulations to all those who attended Trainer's EDGE on Saturday, March 24, 2018. Trainer's EDGE is designed to help leaders become better at presentation skills for their pack, troop, crew, district, or council level leaders and youth. We had people from all districts and one from Westmoreland Fayette council. Six will be serving on the Wood Badge course this year. One wanted to strengthen his skills for troop presentations.

Wood Badge is the highest level of adult Scout leader training available. It was first presented in England by the founder of Scouting, Baden Powell, and he introduced the program into the United States during a visit in 1936.
