University of Scouting is an excellent training opportunity for Scout leaders throughout our Sequoia Council. UOS is the only place where you will find such a wide variety of training opportunities, Whether you’re new to the program or a veteran of many years, UOS provides valuable courses, leadership training, and elective courses applicable across the Scouting programs. It’s also a great opportunity to meet fellow Scouters from around the Council and beyond.

Stay tuned for upcoming information about future events.
