Re: New Cub Basic Training Program
- According to what is on the Oct Cubcast on the National web site and
what I have been hearing, in the new Cub Scout Training Modules, NLE
will be coming last in the order.
First will be Fast Start, then the Focus on the specific position,
then Youth Protection, then NLE. They also said somthing about a
module on the history of Cub Scouting and a module on Cub Scout
They said on the Cubcast that the whole point is to answer the
question that newly "trained" leaders often ask - what do I do now?

the last year we have gotten going right on time. Even if there is only
one person in the room. It's only fair to those who were thoughtful
enough to arrive on time.
