Troop 1029
Winter / Spring 2020: Patrol Leaders Council


Patrol Leaders Council

"PLC"

What is "PLC"?

Troop 1029 elects scout leaders for six month terms. Supported by our adult leaders, these scouts are responsible for every aspect of the Troop 1029 program and activities during their term in office. The scouts elected as leaders are generally among the more experienced Troop 1029 has available. As a scout led troop, we strive to allow these girls the opportunity to demonstrate the leadership skills they have been acquiring since joining Scouts BSA. Being on the PLC is an opportunity to put into practice the vision of Scouting; to build leaders capable of making moral decisions.

Being elected is an honor.

With Honor comes responsibility.

In the patrol leaders council you will get a chance to express the hopes and desires of your patrol. Here, also, you will receive the guidance and help you need to conduct your patrol affairs and train your patrol members.

In the patrol leaders council you will pick up inspiration for making your patrol the best possible.
