Troop 421 has both youth-facing positions, such as the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters, and adult-facing positions such as Committee Chair and Treasurer.
The Scoutmaster is the adult responsible for working directly with the Scouts to help them create the program for the troop. The Scoutmaster trains boy leaders to run the troop by providing direction, coaching, and support.
