Roundtable

Roundtables are a monthly gathering of pack, troop, team, crew, and district leaders. Get the latest information on district and council events, training opportunities, BSA policies and learn about great available resources. Roundtable is an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. The roundtable commissioner and staff demonstrate elements of a model meeting that leaders may use as a pattern for their own meetings. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, and able to provide a stronger program for Scouts.

For Roundtable breakouts for leaders of youth ages 11-18, here is the new curriculum based on BSA's Program Features for Troops, Teams, and Crews and an LDS version of the NYLT syllabus. These lessons will enable leaders to follow the Young Men general presidency's directive regarding youth: Be with Them, Connect Them with Heaven, and Let Them Lead. You can download a slide presentation about these directives and using Scouting resources to help with your young men activities here.

You can access monthly agendas here:

These agendas reference the LDS NYLT curriculum, which is a series of leadership skills to teach youth. These skills are best taught in order, so for the skill instruction portion of roundtable, teach the next skill in the list:

  1. Finding Your Vision
  2. Leading Reflections
  3. Communicating Well
  4. Setting Your Goals
  5. Preparing Your Plan
  6. Developing Your Team
  7. Solving Problems
  8. The Leading EDGE
  9. Servant Leadership
  10. The Teaching Edge
  11. Resolving Conflict
  12. Making Ethical Decisions
  13. Leading Yourself
  14. Valuing People

 

The goals of Roundtable are four-fold:

  1. To help motivate unit leaders and refresh their morale, enthusiasm, inspiration and vision.
  2. To provide unit leaders with relevant skills, techniques, ideas, information and know-how to make their unit operation successful. This instruction builds strong and exciting scouting programs.
  3. To provide resources to help unit leaders in their roles.
  4. Respect the time given by each Scout or Scouter that is attending-- it can never be replaced.

All Adult Leaders who hold any position within their units are invited to attend each month. Come and share your knowledge, skills and resources for the benefit of all your leaders and youth in your local district.

For more information on your District's Roundtable, contact your local Unit Commissioner or a member of the District leadership. You may also click on Districts and then select your district to see when and where your Roundtable is being held.
