We have a letter prepared that we can send to your employer.  Our hope is that your employer will recognize the value of this great training opportunity. In our letter, we will: Explain the value of the Wood Badge experience in the workplace, request that your employer allow you time off of work that does not deduct from your vacation or sick leave, and request that they consider funding or subsidizing the cost of your attendance.
