All our merit badge counselors are YPT trained and approved by our Council to instruct. Prior to registering, the Scout should have a discussion with their unit leader to notify them of their interest in taking the badge and confirm that their unit leader will approve the blue card upon course completing
Please note that counselors may not be searchable in Scoutbook because they have opted to be visible only at district or unit level.
