Exploring Advisor-Specific Training

Who should take this training?

New Exploring Post Advisors (and it’s not a bad idea for Associate Advisors, too)

 

Why should I take this training?

The Advisor is the key adult leader in an Explorer Post and is responsible for training post officers, helping them plan a program of activities, coaching them in their leadership responsibilities, and obtaining adult help and resources as needed through the post committee. You have the opportunity to develop a community in which young people learn to live the values of Exploring: ethical leadership, responsibility for themselves, commitment to others, and enjoying life.

Exploring Advisor Position-Specific Training will give you an introduction to everything you need to know about being an Advisor, from helping the post President and other youth leaders run the program to working with the post Committee. It won’t answer every single question you have, but it’s a great start. And, it’s available online so you can complete it in 10-minute modules during free time.
