To make this program a success we reach out to local Scout leaders from across the council to nominate their very best Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts and Explorers to lead the program, that is sponsored by the Bismarck Rotary Club. This is a great opportunity for Scouts to gather in the Capitol City of Bismarck and update our North Dakota Governor on everything that is happening in our Boy Scout Council. After the program; all Scouts, family members and leaders will have the opportunity to take part in a special guided tour of the North Dakota state Capitol. Submit your nominations form today.

Youth Protection Training
The Northern Lights Council will be conducting Youth Protection Training via video conference (Go to Meeting) in September and October. As previously announced, a NEW Youth Protection Training course is required for all registered leaders before they will be able to renew their BSA membership later this year.

Unit Charter Renewal and Youth Protection Training
As we begin the annual Unit Charter Renewal Campaign, it is important to note that current Youth Protection Training will be required for all leader renewals at the time the online charter renewal is completed. What this means is, if a unit has a leader that is not current in Youth Protection Training, the unit will not be able to finish the online charter renewal.
Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training
Leader Position- Specific training courses are being offered across the Council from September 13 - December 5. Download the training flyer with schedule here.
