Parent Volunteers

Cub Scouting is a family program that depends on parent involvement. A Cub Scout Pack is just like any organization - it needs leaders, organizers and helpers to create a program that provides value, fun and safety for our kids.

There are many ways that parents can volunteer to help Pack 194, ranging from committing to an ongoing leadership role, to just helping out at a single event or outing. We ask that you consider how you could spare some time to assist our pack.

This could be as simple as:
  • managing a project at a scout meeting
  • helping to set-up, manage and/or pack up at an event
  • attending one or more of our monthly planning meetings to provide input
  • volunteering to organize an event or outing,
or it could mean a more permanent role as a leader in the pack. If you would like to consider an ongoing role, please see our Open Positions page.

Parents who volunteer need to complete a brief online course in Youth Protection Training. To do this, please complete the following steps:

1. Visit the MyScouting website, click 'Create an account' to create an account.
2. Once you're logged in, select the 'E-Learning' link, then 'Take Course' next to 'Youth Protection Training'.
3. Once you have completed the course and have your certificate, please email a copy of it to john@steamboatscouts.com.
