Youth Leadership

Troop 5 is a “Scout-run” organization. The Senior Patrol Leader and their Assistant Senior Patrol Leader(s) actively lead the Troop meetings and outings. These youth leaders are elected by the Scouts in the Troop in May of each year. The patrol leaders are also elected by the Troop 5 Scouts.


Troop leaders are supported by Friends and Family troop volunteers, online training and planning tools, a local team of experienced Girl Scout volunteers, and dedicated staff. Below are the training requirements for the Troop Leader role.

The other leadership positions (Warrant Officers), such as Quartermaster, Librarian, Scribe, Troop Guide, Troop Instructor, and Chaplain’s Aide, are chosen by the Senior Patrol Leader from written applications submitted by the Scouts who wish to fill these positions.

  1. Leadership Our troop is proudly youth-lead, adult-supported. The most important members of the troop are the Senior Patrol Leader, with their Assistant SPL, his support team.
  2. The youth leadership training continuum is divided into three courses: The first course is Troop Leadership Training (TLT), which is designed to be run frequently in a troop setting. The Scoutmaster and senior patrol leader will conduct this three-hour training whenever there are new Scouts or there has been a shift in leadership positions.

The Senior Patrol Leader, the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, the Patrol Leaders and the other Warrant Officers make up the Troop Leader Council, or TLC. The TLC meets briefly after every weekly troop meeting to evaluate the program for that meeting and to review any upcoming trips and meetings. TLC also meets once a month for a more detailed planning or training meeting. Every June, the newly elected TLC meets to plan the calendar for the following year, choosing the camping trips and the monthly themes for the troop meetings. Every summer TLC members attend a formal training program.

Adult Leadership

Troop 5’s Adult Leaders are registered with and have passed background checks by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). All have been trained by the BSA in youth protection, and receive additional training throughout the year. Many have passed both Red Cross and Boy Scout first aid requirements. Some leaders are parents of Scouts, some parents of former Scouts, some are former Scouts (even from Troop 5!).


Our Scoutmaster, Roger Brauchli, along with the Assistant Scoutmasters, work with the boys on a day-to-day basis. This team provides mentorship to the members of the TLC. This very active group of Scouters gets to know each of the boys very well, and is involved with all the events, programs, and activities of the troop.

Supporting the Scoutmaster in delivering a quality troop program and handling troop administration is the Troop Committee. The Troop Committee is led by our Committee Chair, Bob Fay.

The Executive Board meets monthly; Functional Teams meet as necessary, usually at Troop meetings or at Executive Board meetings.
