Become a Leader

Trained patch

Parents are the lifeblood of our Pack. Without them, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun.

It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in our Pack. ALL of the required training can be taken online - so you can take the training at your own pace!

Steps to Leadership

  1. Talk to a current leader (Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Den Leader) about your willingness to help

  2. Discuss which role would best fit your talents and comfort level

  3. Complete Council Specific Training

  4. Complete Pack Specific Training

Council Specific Training (45 Minutes)

    1. Fill out and print the Adult Leader Application at the bottom of this page

    2. Go to and create an account.

    3. Take the following courses at

      • Youth Protection Training

        • Print the Youth Protection Training Certificate (available upon completion of the course)

      • This is Scouting

      • Leader Specific (which role you will be performing)

    4. Submit your certificates and your completed Adult application to the Cubmaster or Committee Chair

Pack Specific Training (45 minutes)

    1. All Pack 673 adult volunteers MUST complete the Safe Environment Training and a background check, as required by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and St. Cecilia Catholic Church

      • This includes either Virtus or CMGConnect Training & background check

      • Note: The Archdiocese recently replaced Virtus with CMGConnect as their training program of choice

      • If you hold a current Virtus certificate, you do not have to take CMGConnect training until your Virtus certificate expires

      • If you do not have a current Virtus certificate, you need to take CMGConnect training to earn your certificate
