Troop Guide


Troop Guide is another important youth leadership position in a Boy Scout troop. A troop guide is an older scout who helps new scouts learn the “Boy Scout way” of doing things, which is much different from the “Cub Scout way” of doing things.

Any older Scout who is good with younger members of the troop is a good candidate for Troop Guide. If you have a den crossing over to your troop, then a very natural thing is to let the Boy Scout who was their Den Chief when they were Cub Scouts become their Troop Guide.

The description and requirements below are an example. Adjust them as necessary to meet the needs of your troop. The printable copy also includes a self evaluation form for the position.
