National Youth Leadership Training
Do you want the youth leaders in your unit to…
Really learn about team leadership and development?
Develop effective communication systems?
Get the same type of training that Fortune 500 managers
give to their teams?

attended Woodbadge for the 21st Century speak?

Online Resources to Help Your Family With Disaster Preparedness ...  Is your family prepared for a potential disaster.  Here are some online resources that you can use to help prepare your household and workplace for disaster. The recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan were a reminder of how important it is to make sure your family is prepared for disasters. Every family should be prepared with enough food, water, medical supplies, batteries, and other survival equipment to be completely self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in case of a major disaster.
