Wood Badge will help you improve your role in scouting. It will help you focus on your responsibilities, identify a goal, help you work toward that goal-and give you the goals to reach it.
But Wood Badge is more than that. It teaches how a group develops and how the leader can assist in that process. It is about the interrelationship of all members of the Scouting family. It helps identify the connections between the district, the council, and the individual unit. It shows you how to tie Scouting's values into unit meetings with outings. Wood Badge is more than a classroom-it is games and hands-on projects. You will come away with an appreciation of Scouting's heritage as you will play in its future -the impact you will make on a youth in your own unit at home.
