District Junior Leader Training Patches

Culver Palms District

Westwood District


The training of Boy Scouts, also known as Junior Leader Training, goes back to the beginning of Crescent Bay Council in 1922. By the 1930's training was organized on the District level. In the early 1940's, District Green Bar Corps were formed. Sometime in the late 1940's or early 1950's, the Green Bar Corps evolved into Junior Leader Training (JLT)  that included Junior Leader Conferences (JLC) conducted within the districts.

A few patches and neckerchief slides are the only known insignia from this period.












Silk screened and flocked on canvas. This patch was used by Culver Palms Green Bar Corps, maybe as early as the the late 1940's.

1950's-60's





1958
Junior Leader Conference
In 1957, Crescent Bay Council organized the district training programs under the umbrella of JLT. Eight years later, Junior Leader Training was revamped again as the Polaris program.

The Boy Scouts encouraged local councils to develop Junior Leader Training programs. The patch to the left was a National issue available to any council. Crescent Bay used this patch inside the green and red JLT patch.

"T" on top. Cut edge.
Reading clockwise from the left, the original versions of the patch read JTL







"T" on top. Rolled edge.
Maybe the intention was to read the top T first. Then the lettering stood for Trained Junior Leader.






"L" on top. Rolled edge.
The last version of this design changed the lettering so that reading clockwise from the left, the letters stood for
Junior Leader Training.

The first patch for JLT staff at Camp Wolverton was worn from the button
of the pocket flap.













While the program was called Junior Leader Training, the successful participants were Trained Jr. Leaders.
A red patrol patch was meant to be worn
in the center as with previous JLT patches.
It is also possible that segments were meant to be worn inside the patch but no segments are currently known for this purpose.







The courses at Camp Wolverton
became JLIT -
Junior Leader Instructor Training.
 The JLIT staff patch was meant
 to be worn on the shoulder of the
 uniform and also on neckerchiefs.

How JLT Patches Were Worn 












A scout would attend JLT in order to go back to his troop and provide training to the other boys in his patrol. Maintaining the participant's patrol identity was a significant goal in the program. Participants would sew their patrol patch into the center of the JLT patch and wear it on the shoulder where only the patrol patch had previously been.
