A Patrol Leader is elected by his patrol. He is essential for implementing the patrol method within the Troop. He guide his patrol, receives input from them, and represents them in the Patrol Leaders Council (PLC). The position description below is a sample. Modify it to fit the needs of your troop.

The printable copy also includes a self evaluation form for the position. Our youth leaders self evaluate at least once during their term. We try to keep it positive with them, but it does help them recognize areas they should be working on.
