Tiger Cub Den Leaders rock.
Tiger Cub Den Leaders need to complete "Tiger Cub Den Leader Specific Training" and "Youth Protection Certification" to be fully trained in their position. All of these are offered as both in classroom and online course formats.
Once you are "Trained" you are elgible to earn the Tiger Cub Den Leader Square Knot. To learn more about this award and download your Progress Record, click here .
Tiger Cub Den Leaders should always "Do Their Best" to attend training events with another from their den. This is for three reasons: 1. To practice the Buddy System - one of the Methods of Scouting we teach our Scouts. 2. Because it increases your learning and recall; and 3. Besides doing stuff with a friend is always more fun.
Go to the Northern Star Council website to find the locations available for classroom Tiger Cub Den Leader Training programs.
Go to the National Council/BSA to learn more about the qualifications and responsibilities of a Tiger Cub Den Leader .
The basic element of Tiger Cubs is the Tiger Cub-Adult partner team. The adult may be a parent, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, or even a neighbor. The requirements are that the adult partner be 18 years of age or older, care about the boy, and be strongly committed to his well-being. The boy and his adult partner join Tiger Cubs together. They do all the family, den and Go See It activities together. The adult partner is responsible for seeing that the boy is successful with his advancement in Tiger Cubs.
Each boy-adult partner team assumes the responsibility of hosting one or more months of den meetings with the den leader. The host team and the den leader plan the meeting program and the location. Tiger Cub adult partners who wish to become registered leaders must complete an Adult Application and pay the appropriate adult fee prorated to the pack's charter renewal date.
