Cub Leaders Receive Training on the use of new Cub Scout Leaders Handbook
Cub Scout Leaders from the Corozal, Belize and Cayo Districts were introduced to a new training handbook for Leaders of that Section at a one-day training workshop that was held on Saturday, November 8, 2003, at the Scout Headquarters conference room.
Published in 1998 by the Interamerican Scout Office as part of the development strategy for the region and the Methodology for the Continuous Update of the Scout Program (MACPRO), this handbook forms part of the new training program for Cub Scouts in Belize.
This new handbook is geared to provide a concrete educational tool based on a solid theoretical approach. The content, language and style of this book are designed to encourage the Leader to think long and hard about what it means to educate children.
It is designed to highlight the importance of contributing to the development of all the dimensions of a child’s personality. It explains a non-confrontational, non-formal educational process, which makes the most of the special time available in leisure time.
Mrs. Alma Eiley, a member of the National Training Team of the Association conducted the training workshop. She was a participant at the revision of the work in English and its adoption to the situation of the Caribbean Scout Associations that was carried out at a Seminar held at Gilwell Park, London, England in 1998.
The new training program for the Cub Scout Section was launched during Scout Week in February of 2004.
The Belize Scout Foundation was pleased to contribute $1,000.00 towards the cost of materials and food for this event.
