Top Trained Unit Awards

Top Trained Unit

In order to be registered leaders in a BSA unit, adults MUST be current in Youth Protection Training.   The next training step for leaders is to complete the basic training course(s) for their position because: “Every Scout deserves a trained leader.”  (Lord Baden-Powell)

The 2016 Patriots’ Path “Top Trained Unit” Award recognizes units that made the extra effort and had at least 60% of their direct contact leaders complete basic leader training by the end of 2016.    These awards will be presented to the units at the February district roundtables.    If your unit has earned this important award, please send a representative to your district roundtable to receive it.

Shane Jones Named New Youth Executive Committee President

Effective January 1, 2017 Shane Jones will take the reigns as the 2017 Youth Executive Committee President.  Shane is an emerging youth leader in the Patriots’ Path Council and will take the place of outgoing president, Justin Strnatko.  Justin has served the committee as its president since 2015.

Shane joined the Scouting program back in first grade as a Tiger Cub and has excelled through the program since. He earned numerous awards in his years as a Cub Scout including his Arrow of Light. After crossing over to Boy Scouts he plunged right into the many events and activities that were held and would get involved with whatever he could. He advanced through the ranks at a rapid pace and once he made his Eagle Scout in the later months of 2014 he became involved with the Order of the Arrow and the council. In the Order he earned up to his Brotherhood Honor and served in numerous positions throughout the lodge. In the council he served as the 2014-2015 vice president of program on the Youth Executive Committee and a number of other responsibilities.

Shane currently serves as the Youth Executive Committee President, Vice Chief of Program of Woapalanne Lodge, and is a part of camp staff. Shane is looking to go to the University of Rochester for Photography or to the College of Morris for the Nursing Program. He knows this will be a fantastic year, maybe one of the best in the Youth Executive Committee but this can only be possible with everyone’s help!

The Youth Executive Committee is a program in the Boy Scouts of America established by the Patriots’ Path Council. This committee consists of male and female representatives, ages 14-20, from the Order of the Arrow, Venturing, Exploring, Sea Scouts, National Youth Leadership Training Staff, and the Council Youth Leadership Award recipients.

The purpose of the Youth Executive Committee is to enhance the overall program of the council and its districts by promoting fellowship and leadership through social activities, voicing their opinion on council committees, creating stronger partnerships with outside organizations and to continue to advocate for education, youth leadership, community service, environmental stewardship and strong families.

THANKS TO OUR FLINTLOCKS
