What is a Patrol?

What are the available youth leadership positions in Boy Scouts?

Guide to Positions of Responsibility

Some available youth leadership positions in the Boy Scouts are:

Senior Patrol Leader

The senior patrol leader (SPL) is elected by the Scouts to represent them as the top youth leader in the troop. He runs all troop meetings, events, activities, the annual program planning conference, and the patrol leaders' council meeting. He appoints other troop youth leaders with the advice and counsel of the Scoutmaster.


The quartermaster keeps track of troop equipment and sees that it is in good working order. He keeps records on patrol and troop equipment, makes sure equipment is in good working condition, and issues equipment and makes sure it is returned in good condition. (Appointed by the SPL)

Chaplain Aide

The chaplain aide works with the troop chaplain to meet the religious needs of Scouts in the troop. He also works to promote the religious emblems program. (Appointed by the SPL)

Assistant Senior Patrol Leader

The assistant senior patrol leader (ASPL) is the second highest youth leadership position in the troop, working closely with the senior patrol leader to help the troop move forward. The assistant senior patrol leader acts as the senior patrol leader in the absence of the senior patrol leader or when called upon, and provides leadership to other youth leaders in the troop. The assistant senior patrol leader is appointed by the senior patrol leader under the guidance of the Scoutmaster.


The scribe keeps the troop records. He records the activities of the patrol leaders’ council and keeps a record of dues, advancement, and Scout attendance at troop meetings. (Appointed by the SPL)

Den Chief

The den chief works with the Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, and den leaders in the Cub Scout pack. Helps Cub Scouts advance through Cub Scout ranks and encourages Cub Scouts to join a Boy Scout troop upon graduation.

Patrol Leader

The patrol leader is the elected leader of his patrol. He represents his patrol on the patrol leaders’ council and appoints the assistant patrol leader.


The historian preserves troop photographs, news stories, trophies, flags, scrapbooks, awards, and other memorabilia. (Appointed by the SPL)


The Webmaster works with an adult leader to keep information on the web site up to date. Information posted includes photographs, maps, and information of upcoming events and activities.

Assistant Patrol Leader

The assistant patrol leader (APL) is appointed by the patrol leader and leads the patrol in his absence. The APL helps the patrol leader plan and steer patrol meetings and activities, helps keep patrol members informed, and helps the patrol get ready for all troop activities.


The librarian oversees the care and use of troop books, pamphlets, magazines, audiovisuals, and merit badge counselor lists. (Appointed by the SPL)

Order of the Arrow Representative

The Order of the Arrow Representative is a youth liaison serving between the local Order of the Arrow (OA) lodge or chapter and his troop. In his unit, he helps meet the needs of the unit and will serve as a communication and programmatic link to and from Arrowmen, adult leaders and Scouts who are not presently members of the Order. (Appointed by the SPL)


The instructor teaches Scouting skills. (Appointed by the SPL)

Junior Assistant Scoutmaster

The junior assistant Scoutmaster (JASM) serves in the capacity of an assistant Scoutmaster except where legal age and maturity are required. He must be at least 16 years old and not yet 18. He is appointed by the Scoutmaster because of his leadership ability.

Outdoor Ethics Guide (aka Leave No Trace Trainer)

The Outdoor Ethics Guide specializes in teaching Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! principles and ensures that the troop follows the principles of Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! on all outings such as camping and other outdoor activities.

He can also help Scouts earn the Leave No Trace award.

He should have a thorough understanding of and commitment to Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly!. Ideally, he should have completed Leave No Trace training or Tread Lightly! training as well as earned both the Camping and Environmental Science merit badges.


The Bugler should be able to make appropriate bugle calls, as requested, at troop activities. (Appointed by the SPL) Serving as Bugler can apply towards Positions of Responsibility requirements for Star and Life but not Eagle.

Troop Guide

The troop guide works with new Scouts. He helps them feel comfortable and earn their First Class in their first year. He teaches basic Scout skills and works with the patrol leader at patrol leaders’ council meetings.
