The Western Los Angeles County Council VOA has hit its halfway point for the 2015-2016 term, and has some great events to reflect upon. In December 2015, WLACC led the Leadership Skills for Crews (LSC) training at Camp Josepho in the Pacific Palisades. There, Venturers were given the opportunity to meet other scouts from their Councils, and have fun learning an assortment of skills that can be applied to everyday leadership, whether it may be in a group project for school, at home with siblings, or in their Crews. The LSC course was created to help Venturers learn and practice the attitudes and skills demonstrated by good leaders, and apply them to situations in and outside of the Crew.
WLACC’s VOA led the training through three modules: Leading Self, Leading Others, and Leading Crews, along with sub-modules including Creating a Vision, Goal Setting, Communication, Group Decision Making, Planning, Delegating, and Team Development, all of which were presented in fun and creative manners. Overall, the weekend was a success, developing a group of Venturers into better leaders!
