Philmont Training Center


Serving Diverse Communities

If you are a commissioner serving units in multicultural communities, then this conference is for you! Topics will include insights, tools, and resources to help you become more familiar and effective as a district commissioner, assistant district commissioner, or unit commissioner serving units in your area. As communities grow and change, more units are being formed in Scouting's underserved markets. Many of these units may not have a history with Scouting. You will successfully deliver the mission of Scouting by better understanding the opportunity and challenges these new units face and understand the importance of your mission of commissioner service to their sustainable success and quality Scouting experience. Effective monthly visits, unit self-assessments, and action planning, providing charter renewal, annual service plans, commissioner priorities, and the Commissioner's role in assisting units to succeed all contribute to their Journey to Excellence.


Week 1: June 11-17
