Scouting U Launches New BSA Learn Center

Connecting volunteers to the learning content they need when they need it is the purpose of the new BSA Learn Center. In to-day’s fast-paced world Scouting volunteers want to know how to deliver quality Scouting programs to youth but need access to training in short learning segments. Delivering a quality Scouting program makes volunteering as a leader rewarding. When the Scouting program is delivered as designed, leaders get to see the youth become more confident and resilient and begin to learn and practice leadership at all levels.

The BSA Learn Center is designed to provide new and robust methods of delivering learning to leaders. Position-specific training is now delivered in three parts called learning plans. The content for each learning plan is designed for the specific position and is recommended to be taken before the first meeting, within the first 30 days, and to complete position-specific training with-in 90 days. The training program is self-paced, allowing the volunteer to complete the training as quickly as he or she would like.
