Troop 33 Leadership Resources

Leader Positions

The uniformed Adult Leaders consist of Assistant Scoutmasters and Advisors operating under the direction of the Scoutmaster. Their duties are to train and guide boy leaders, and to use the Methods of Scouting to achieve the aims of Scouting. The Scoutmaster has full responsibility for all program decisions of the Troop. We expect all uniformed Adult Leaders to take the basic Scout Leader Training offered by the White Oak District and to read The Boy Scout Handbook and Scoutmaster Handbook.

He directs the general activities of the Troop including instruction, Advancement, Troop and Patrol activities, as well as general supervision in helping the boys to run the Troop.
