Good Day Scouters!
The Appalachian Trail Training Corps (ATTC) is proud to bring you this
public service announcement.
The AT District just recently passed a milestone worth crowing about. Of
the ~700 adult leaders in the Appalachian Trail District, 51% of them are
now fully trained and documented for their registered position. We have
seen a ~20% increase, or about 140 people, overall in 2012.
To all those newly trained leaders, I offer a hearty "Thank you!" Your
efforts result in a better program for your own children and for all the
young people who participate in Scouting.
Now... 49% to go.
The ATTC is working hard to provide a steady flow of training in our own
District for all levels of Scouting. But we understand that lives are
busy and schedules are complicated, so we also strive to advertise
trainings near, such as in Leesburg, Gaithersburg and Thurmont, and far,
throughout the 22 other districts in the Council.
I encourage those who still need to take their required position training
to first, check the AT District Webpage for offerings. Look under the "Event Registrations"
section on the homepage; under the blue "Training" tab; or, our calendar.
If you don't see your course there, move up to the Council training calendar. The links are
pasted below. If you don't see your course there, contact me directly, and
I will help you find a course offering.
This autumn, the ATTC is focused on Tiger Den Leader Training. We would
like to have 100% of the Tiger Leaders trained for their position. The
Tiger Leaders are running front line program for the newest, youngest,
wiggliest Scouts. Yet these Leaders are often the greenest among us. We
want to be sure they get their required training. More importantly, we want
to ensure they learn about the network of support that exists among us
so that they do not struggle to reinvent the wheel.
So, to the Cub Packs out there, I encourage you to make sure your Tiger Leaders are trained and
thriving. We're here to help. Send them our way.

On behalf of the ATTC, thank you again for your time and talents given for
the betterment of Frederick County's young people.
Yours in Scouting,
