    You need to:

    • look after the whole Patrol/team
    • help individuals in your team if they need it
    • make sure that your team achieves the goal you have been set
  2. Help a new Scout to be part of the Troop with an understanding of what is expected of them.
  3. Help another Scout to develop a Scouting skill.
  4. Represent the views of other Scouts.
