Given that this is a 'one-shot' deal, we will be looking at the delivery method to get this course to all of the Boy Scout (Cub/Boy/Venture/Ship) archdiocesan direct contact leaders.

The initial course was offered to about 30 Scouters. Course addressed the relationship between Catholic Scouting and the Boy Scouts of America, the Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality and some case examples of 'what to do' within different scenarios. Those present felt that the course presented the youth actions - but needed a little more guidance from the adult perspective.
OYM is will ask permission to put the program book on-line.
The next step is to offer a webinar hosted by ADW Family Life and OYM.
