Larry Green
Pioneering Activities Facilitator
Larry Green coaching a Scout patrol on working together as a team.

Pictured to the right with members of one of his Boy Scout youth groups , Larry Green has spent over twenty years teaching outdoor survival skills and conducting seminars on teamwork for businesses, civic groups, and as a trainer of adult leaders for the Boy Scouts of America over a five state area. He is a longtime Scoutmaster, and in his own troop, Scout patrols of youth from 11-18 years of age have consistently placed “first” in biannual competitions in an area containing over 10,000 Scouts. "What works with the Boy Scouts works with adults even better. I've taken patrols of young men into competitions where they were completely unfamiliar with the challenge activities. But, because they were so adept at working together as a team, they romped over forty other patrols, including those who were previously introduced to the events and had even practiced before entering the competition. It's all about teamwork—learning to pull together, pooling your resources, and cooperating with one another! Working together in this fashion is not only productive and rewarding, it's also a lot of fun! Nothing succeeds like success!"

Before formally entering the team building arena, Larry Green was a school teacher for socially maladjusted youth in New York City. On the job, he taught music to students who were placed in his care because they had previously been violent to teachers in other schools. He formed a band with a group of these teenagers and took them all the way to first place in a sixteen region, statewide competition. Even back then, under those conditions, he knew what was required to "band" folks together into a successful team. "A performing band is an excellent and shining example of the best kind of teamwork. In order to sound good, it was necessary for those violent young men to cooperate with each other. They depended upon one another and the end result was a proud group of strong individuals who learned how to DO IT. . . TOGETHER!"
