In 2010, the National Youth Network began working on two new Youth Leadership training programs aimed at the younger Scouting sections. These courses are called FLEX (Fun Leadership EXperience) for Cub Scouts and FAST (Fun Active Scout Training) for Scouts. FLEX and FAST trainers will help youth learn the skills to become the greatest leaders they can be. These modules on core leadership skills will help youth take on the kinds of leadership opportunities that will take them to the next level and achieve truly great things.
