Scoutmaster Corps

The Scoutmaster is the adult leader responsible for the program of the Troop. The Scoutmaster and assistant Scoutmasters work directly with the Scouts. The importance of the Scoutmaster’s role is reflected in the fact that the quality of guidance will affect every youth and adult involved in the Troop. The duties of the Scoutmaster include:
· Train and guide youth leaders.
· Work with other responsible adults to bring Scouting to boys.
· Meet regularly with the patrol leaders’ council for training and coordination in planning troop activities.
· Attend all troop meetings or, when necessary, arrange for a qualified adult substitute.
· Attend troop committee meetings.
· Conduct periodic parent’s sessions to share the program and encourage parent participation and cooperation.
· Conduct Scoutmaster conferences for all rank advancements.
· Conduct all activities under qualified leadership, safe conditions, and the policies of the chartered organization and the Boy Scouts of America.
· Delegate responsibility to other adults and groups so that they have a real part in troop operation.
· Build a strong program.

Assistant Scoutmasters
The Scoutmaster, with the assistance of the Troop Committee, recruits Assistant Scoutmasters to help operate the Troop. Assistant Scoutmasters help guide the program of the Troop. Each Assistant Scoutmaster is assigned specific duties and reports to the Scoutmaster. Assistant Scoutmasters provide required “two-deep leadership”. Assistant Scoutmaster roles may include but are not limited to:
· Senior Assistant
· Patrol Coach - 2 per patrol
· Quartermaster
· Scribe
· Grubmaster
· New Scouts
· Troop-Pack Relations
