What is a Patrol Leaders' Council? 

One of the most significant benefits of Scouting is leadership development.  It is almost impossible for young men to get anywhere near the degree of leadership experience typical in Scouting outside of Scouting before adulthood.

The Patrol Leaders' Council plans and runs the Troop's program and activities.  The Council is composed of the Troop's youth leaders - Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders, Troop Guide, and Patrol Leaders. The meetings are conducted by the Senior Patrol Leader.

The Scoutmaster attends the Patrol Leaders' Council meeting as a coach and an informational resource.  The Scoutmaster and Troop Committee retain veto power over decisions of the Patrol Leaders' Council, but should need to exercise it only on rare occasions when the plans of the Patrol Leaders' Council would violate BSA policy or could lead to a situation that might be dangerous or unsafe.
