    *Introduction Opening remarks

    This PowerPoint is designed as a sample to use when presenting the SSALBT (Sea Scout Adult Leader Basic Training) Course to adult Sea Scout volunteers. It follows the syllabus that can be obtained from the National Council by emailing or calling 972-580-2448. You can change the pictures to compliment your local council's program and add local slides to make it your own.

    *I. Introduction Opening remarks*I.A. Objectives

    I.B. Introduce staff

    *I.C.1. Participants introduce selvesI.C.2. Participant poll (Choose one option.)

    Option OneGive each participant three slips of paper. They are to respond to the following questions:What do you absolutely need to know before you leave this class?What do you hope to take back to your unit to help them grow?What are your biggest concerns about Sea Scouting?

    Option TwoDivide the group into small groups of three to five. Ask each participant to, Tell your group one thing about being a Sea Scout leader you are looking forward to and one thing about being a leader that worries you.For participants already in active ships, they need to, Tell your group one thing about being a Sea Scout leader you enjoy most and one thing about being a leader you enjoy least.Allow participants five minutes to complete the discussion. Then ask someone from each small group to summarize and report their discussion. Write the positives and concerns on a flip chart or blackboard and address them during the training.*I.D. Introduction to Sea Scouting

    Before we examine where you are going in your future with Sea Scouts, lets look at where our council has been in its past.

    In 1910, Lord Baden Powell, founder of Boy Scouts, looked about. He was concerned by the homeless youth and gangs in Englands streets. Europe was politically unstable, and Englands merchant marine, backbone of British Navy, was manned by foreigners.*Powell decided to combine the best attributes of seamanship with the character training of Boy Scouts. It would give an avocation to older youth and England would be better prepared for what laid ahead.*In 1912, Sea Scouting came to America. To be a Sea Scout a young man had to subscribe to Boy Scout Oath and Law, pass tenderfoot requirements, be 15, and weigh at least 112 pounds. Since that time, Sea Scouts have been teaching values through seamanship. *America was changed forever on December 7, 1941. Our Pacific fleet was decimated at Pearl Harbor. Shortly after the bombing, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox formally asked Sea Scout leaders and youth to consider naval service during WWII. Current and former Sea Scouts and leaders with at least two years of college between ages 19 and 50 were given immediate commissions. By the end of 1943, over 100,000 Sea Scouts were serving in the US Navy, Coast Guard and Marines.*So, what does the program look like across the nation today? Each ship has its own unique program designed and implemented by its co-ed youth members aged 14 to 21. Some ships sail small boats and catamarans or cruise in sailing sloops. Many sail competitively. In northern states, youth sail in the summer and ice race in winter. On the west coast, ships maintain and cruise in retired naval vessels. Basically, if it is an activity about, on, in, under or through the water, Sea Scouts are involved.*Add you own council and regional history here.*1. Ship a. Youth: The youth of your ship will come to you with a variety of life experiences, ages, abilities and intelligence. Although there is great diversity, there are some developmental issues that all young adults are facing. It is an age of experimentation. Teens will try out new social roles, responsibilities, values and personalities. It is an age of taking risks which can be interesting, if not dangerous. Cognitive skills are in place, but the ability to see cause and effect is still under development. The youth you work with will be moving from dependence to interdependence. Social relationships take on a greater importance, and it is all
