Thunderbird: Training

Trained leaders are adult Scouters who care enough to sacrifice a bit of their time to become fully knowledgeable in the best Scouting methods so that they can most effectively help young people in their units.  Every Scout deserves a trained leader, and every leader deserves to serve alongside other leaders who are fully trained so that they are as effective as possible.

Many basic trainings can be completed online; however, check our district calendar to see when in person trainings are happening in or near your community, because training sessions are greatly enhanced by the personal touch of an experienced trainer and from interacting and sharing with other new leaders.

Upcoming Local Trainings:

Look to our district calendar for more specific details as they become available:

Do you have an adult(s) who need training and can't make our District Training dates?

It is okay to attend courses put on by nearby districts - simply reach out to your Unit Commissioner - he/she can strive to get times/dates for nearby district trainings.
Don't know who your Unit Commissioner is?
Reach out to Katie Paden (Thunderbird District Commissioner) or Virginia Molina (Thunderbird Senior District Executive).
