The Virtual Cub Leader's Handbook


Hey Tiger!


The Tiger Cub Adult Partner

The success of a Tiger Cub den depends on active, enthusiastic families and a knowledgeable, well-trained den leader. The den leader plans and carries out a year - round program of activities for the Tiger Cub den and gives continuity to the program. Each month, however, the den leader also works with a different boy-adult partner team to plan the two monthly den meetings, the Go See It, and the den's part in the pack meeting. (Some teams may serve more than one month, depending on how big the den is.) This is called shared leadership.

Shared leadership is a key part of Tiger Cubs because the direct involvement of you and other adults is important for boys at this age. Shared leadership also gives each boy and adult partner a chance to lead, often resulting in an interesting variety of activities as each boy - adult partner team shares its knowledge and resources.

The Tiger Cub den leader is a registered volunteer position within the BSA. Each Tiger Den MUST include a person in this role. The responsibilities of the Tiger Cub den leader can be summarized as:

  1. Work directly with other den and pack leaders to ensure that their den is an active and successful part of the pack.

  2. Coordinate shared leadership among the Tiger Cub adult partners, ensur-ing that den meetings and outings are planned, prepared for, and con-ducted by all adult partners on a rotating basis, and that the den activities provide advancement opportunities for the boys in the den.

  3. Attend pack leaders' meetings.

  4. Lead the den at the monthly meeting and pack activities.

  5. Ensure the transition of boys in the Tiger Cub den into a Wolf den at the end of the year. See the Cub Scout Leader Book for additional information concerning the responsibilities of this position.
