Leadership Opportunities:

Troop 448 elects new leaders every six months in August and February.   The Senior Patrol leader and Patrol leaders are elected by the scouts. The Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leaders select their assistants. With the guidance of the SM and ASMs, the Patrol Leader Council selects the other youth leadership positions in the Troop.
