Become a Leader or Volunteer to Help

Parents are the lifeblood of our pack.  Without our volunteer helpers and leaders, our program would be severely limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. We are always looking for adult volunteers to help plan events, lead activities with the Scouts, or manage both creative and logistical projects that keep the organization running.

As a pack family, you are expected to help by contributing your efforts in some way. It might be a small role like coordinating the desserts for a party, a slightly larger role like planning one den meeting, or a heroic effort like shepherding the 2nd graders and their parents through their Wolf year or stepping up to assume a pack leadership position.
 
Regardless how you choose to contribute, it is very easy to become a Trained Leader in our pack. There is very little required, and ALL the training can be taken online - so you can do it at your own pace.

Parent Action Items
  • Volunteer to help with small defined tasks. 
  • Ask your Den Leader if they need help.
  • Ask the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about the needs of the Pack. 
  • Remain positive and look for ways to improve the program - turn problems into solutions.  We are not perfect and we will never will be perfect. So don't expect perfect, expect honest effort.
  • Follow the advice we give the boys... Do your best.  If that includes getting trained then you need to get trained.
  • Encourage other parents to help.  Work as a team with projects that need attention.
