TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES FOR MEN AND BOYS FEATURED BELOW

 

NY Network Ministry Junior Leader Training

Districts and Networks play a vital role in junior leadership development. They can provide an environment for boys and young men to come together from many different outposts and backgrounds and learn to work together and fine-tune leadership skills. They can also provide instruction in specialized skills local leaders may not be able to offer.

You may view the upcoming Training Events below. The camp application can be found by a link by placing your pointer over the camp patch.
