Commissioner Service

Every Scouting unit deserves a trained Commissioner!

Commissioner Service is a key part of the Scouting organization. The job of your volunteer unit Commissioner is to help YOUR unit succeed and grow in its mission to bring Scouting’s values to the youth in your community. Unit Commissioners usually have considerable experience in Scouting. They take special training and attend special conferences to help them prepare to help you with rechartering, communication, recruiting, and problem solving.
