      Corinna,

      The JASM position is considered a youth position. A JASM is a 16- or
      17-years-old scout. Therefore, the position is referenced in the
      Junior Leader Handbook and in the Scoutmaster's Junior Leader
      Training (JLT) kit (now being replaced with Troop Leader Training).

      The JASM is trained by the Scoutmaster and given specific duties from
      the Scoutmaster based on troop condition. These duties should not be
      those restricted to (or required of) adult leaders. Example: a JASM
      cannot be considered as the second adult leader for an outing.
      However, there is no specifically outlined (detailed) training for
      this job position.

      A JASM could potentially attend SM/ASM (adult) specific training. As
      Ida noted, consider these questions carefully before making a
      decision to attend:

      * What role(s) to you want the JASM to accept?
      * Can those roles be coached w/out the SM/ASM training?
      * Would the SM/ASM training be good for the JASM?
      * How will the SM/ASM training affect the JASM?
      * How will the SM/ASM who attend the training with the JASM feel
      about being w/ a young man?
      * will the Training team accept him as a trainee since the course was
      geared toward adults?

      YIS,


      Mike.
