For anyone looking to become a "Ad Altare Dei" and/or "Pope Pius" Counselor both BSA & Catholic Youth Protection Training programs are required along with Catholic Committee On Scouting-Position Training prior to running a Course. Any questions please contact Bob Gabage, Chair Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic Committee On Scouting @ firstname.lastname@example.org

All Catholic Chartered Unit Leaders (Pack, Troop, Crew, & Ship), the Archdiocese of Philadelphia currently requires all volunteers (of all faiths) working with Catholic Chartered Scouting Youth (<18) on a regular basis to attend the "Office for Child & Youth Protection" training offered by Virtus (see the link below) and to have a criminal background check (see the Parish Office for Forms).
The Catholic Youth Protection program is very similar to the BSA Youth Protection program BUT the Catholic Church will NOT accept the BSA version to satisfy their volunteer training requirements.
