All T125 Adults,

Are you passionate about or an expert in a certain field?  Consider becoming a Merit Badge Counselor!  The council is always looking for Merit Badge Counselors, particularly in those areas that may not be so common.  In addition, we can always use Counselors embedded in our troop.  The only requirements are that you take Merit Badge Counselor Training and Youth Protection Training.
