Refer to Cub Leader Orientation. (Some of the language from that text is used on this page.) Also refer to the The Cub Leader's Handbook for more details.

Cub Leaders

Scouting leaders participate in a Shared Leadership approach. In Cubs, one leader accepts over-all responsibility for the section, but the principle of sharing the leadership opportunities still applies. In all cases, leaders:

  • cooperate and support one another
  • take on a share of their tasks according to their ability and availability
  • respect other team membersâ perspective in decision making
  • demonstrate behaviour consistent with the Scout Law.

Leaders names are taken from the positive characters of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Youth are to call leaders by their "Jungle Names". (Other leaders without jungle names are referred to as "Scouter Firstname".) Leaders take on a number of roles such as:

  • participating in the planning process
  • preparing and leading activities
  • communicating with youth and parents
  • maintaining pack records
  • representing the section to the group and council.

Kim

A Scout who helps with the Cub pack as a member of the leadership team is called "Kim", after the character in Rudyard Kipling's book Kim. This youth can be called either "Kim" or by their real first name, whichever they are most comfortable. Besides providing a leadership opportunity for the Scout, Kim provides a link to the Scout troop. Both Leaders and Cubs can benefit from Kimâs unique position.

See The Kim Book page for excerpts from the Scouts Canada publication for Kims working with Packs.

Leading

In all activities and situations, leaders need to be prepared to adjust their level of direction and encouragement to match the needs of the youth involved in a particular challenge. For example, where a task or challenge involves new skills or thinking, it is appropriate for the leader to provide greater direction and encouragement than a situation where the youth are more capable and confident. Providing less direction than necessary can stimulate learning provided safety issues are addressed. Scoutingâs mission, principles, promises, law and mottoes provide a value base to guide decisions. Be prepared to draw on these references to guide feedback on youth decisions or to influence decisions affecting youth.
