Leaders and Family

Adult leaders are made up mostly of the parents/guardians of each Cub Scout, and everyone’s participation is critical to the success of the program.

Adult leaders who work directly with youth are known as “direct contact leaders.” These include the Cubmaster, assistant Cubmaster, den leader, and assistant den leader. These adult volunteers wear a uniform and deliver the program directly to the Cub Scouts.

There are other positions that don’t work directly with youth. These adults focus on supporting the direct contact leaders. Each parent/guardian has a talent they can give to support the program. When everyone gives of their talents, every Cub Scout benefits.
