Scouting U DBC Express


All Aboard the Scouting U Train!

Join us on the DBC Express as we chug along to multiple training destinations together on this continuous learning journey! Every 4th Sunday of the month, the DBC Express pulls into two to three one-hour destination “stops” to help you expand your knowledge in one of three areas of interest including: Leader Specific, College of Commissioner Science (CCS), or Supplemental Learning.

These virtual opportunities will also ensure that you get a chance to learn from one of our guest “conductors” and in building a network amongst your fellow “passengers” to help you grow in your role or position(s) of responsibility.
