What makes an Outstanding Leader?

The list below will guide you as to what makes up an Outstanding Leader for your Pack, Troop, Team or Crew. The items listed include some of the activities, program, advancement and community activities your unit should be involved in. A unit led by an Outstanding Leader will be involved in most of them.
