The GSLAC Special Needs Committee is still going to be offering training for adult leaders and offering the Disability Awareness Merit Badge on June 6, 2020 virtually through zoom. We have limited slots available for each class. The committee needs your help in registering for the class and spreading the word of this great opportunity. Sign up today!

The schedule for Saturday June 6, 2020 will be:
Leaders/Adult/Older Scout Class: Will be offering a training focused to support Scouts with special needs from 10:00am-12:00pm and then from 1:00pm-2:00pm. The class will only have 25 participates to have a small group to be able to focus on the content. The training will consist of an interactive training from a special education teacher and several very experienced Scout leaders from 10:00am-12:00pm. Then we wanted to give everyone a zoom/lunch break. Then from 1:00pm-2:00pm we are asking for everyone to complete one of the challenges from the Weekly Challenge the council offered on week 8. We will break the group into smaller groups then come back for a Q and A with members of the special needs committee. We normally have several interactive activities during the training and we felt this would be a good alternative.
Scouts BSA: Disability Awareness Merit badge from 2:30pm-4:00pm. There are no prerequisite for the class and there will be time after the merit badge to complete everything with members of the committee. The class will only have 20 participates to have a small group to be able to focus on the content.
Cub Scouts: The committee did decide that we would not be able to offer a successful program for the Cub Scouts virtually. But, will be able to offer the program at the training day on December 12, 2020 at Beaumont.
