The program highlights personal and leadership development with courses in team building, problem solving, communication, conflict resolution and many other useful skills. These skills can be taken directly back to packs, troops, ships, crews and teams to help leaders guide youth in dynamic Scouting programs.

The Ticket

You may have heard about Scouters “Working their ticket” and wondered what that meant. The ticket is a group of five goals you set for yourself that contribute to the Scouting Movement. You can start working your ticket as soon as the instructional part of the course completes. You learn more about this in the course.
