BSA Resources

The Boy Scouts of America produces resources in several different formats:

  • BIN Resources. Volunteers can obtain these items through their local council service centers. Limited quantities are free. Your local council can order available BIN Resources. (BIN resource order numbers include a hyphen: ##-###.)
    BIN Resources Order Form
  • Supply Division Resources. Items for sale can be ordered, using a credit card, from the BSA Supply Division’s online web site (http://www.scoutstuff.org/), toll-free number (800-323-0732) or from your local BSA council service center. (These items have order numbers of four or five digits and no hyphen: #####.)
  • Online resources are presented with a specific online address provided for each online item. Some online resources require a password for access.

Train-the-Trainer Series

A new BSA train-the trainer course, or series of courses, is currently under development by the training committee and its training design task force. The BSA is calling it T3, or T-Cubed.

  • Part One - The Fundamentals of TrainingPDF - is to help trainers, regardless of previous experience, with presenting effective training. It is designed to help a trainer understand how adults and youth learn, the training model in the BSA, and effective methods of instruction. It is nearing completion with some final testing this summer at the Philmont Training Center.
  • Part Two - The Trainer's EDGEPDF - supplements the practices offered through staff development of training courses and enhances the platform skills of a trainer learned in part one, using the Trainer's EDGE and other methods. It will be an update of the current course and will still be for everyone, but primarily for training managers and staff of advanced leadership training courses.
  • Part Three - will be for master trainers, a new role that is under development.
