Training for Advisers



If you are NOT a Religious Recognitions Adviser yet, and would like to be, please download the program specific information below and follow the instructions laid out within them. Please read through them FIRST, and If you have additional questions about how to be trained to be an Adviser, or wish one on one training, please send your questions via email to: jolietcatholicscouts@gmail.com


As the religious emblems programs are meant to develop the youth’s faith life, it is imperative that the participants be given the necessary skills to accomplish this goal.


The religious recognition programs for grades K-6 are to be completed by a parent or guardian with their child. They are not to be completed in a group setting.


For the religious recognition programs for grades 7+, they are to be completed with an adviser and are NOT to be presented as instructional or in a classroom setting. For those in grades 7+, they are to work in small groups where possible.

Chaplain Training for BSA


Recently the BSA Initiated New Online Training for Unit Chaplains, Composed of Three Sections: Chaplain Roles and Responsibilities, Religious Emblems and Awards, and Interfaith Considerations.


To Serve as a Chaplain or Chaplain Aide is a Unique Opportunity for Ministry. While Serving in These Offices, You Will Have the Opportunity to Help Scouts Grow, Both Physically and Spirituality. Some Techniques to be Used are Modeling, Mentoring, and Offering Faith Based Experiences. This Training Will Help Chaplains Become Better Orientated to the Duties, Responsibilities, and Opportunities of Chaplaincy Service.

Registered Leaders Can Access This Training Through Their my.scouting.org Profile and Clicking Chaplain Training from the Other Training Link on the page.
