Empowered, autonomous and responsible youth leadership is the heart of Scouting.  The job of Scoutmaster is to maintain a safe environment where the youth leadership is free to function with full responsibility -- to encourage, coach and mentor rather than manage, delegate and compel.*  Scouting Founder Sir Robert Baden-Powell once said, “The Scoutmaster teaches boys to play the game by doing so himself.”
