Youth Protection is important to the safety of our youth and adults as well. Youth Protection must be kept up to date. If your Youth Protection training expires this year, renew it now. Remember, a new policy is in effect that any registered adult with Youth Protection Training that expires before April 1 of the following yearwill not be able to recharter and the end of this current year. For instance, if your Youth Protection training was last completed March 31, 2015 (expires March 31, 2017); then you need to renew your Youth Protection before recharetering at the end of 2016.
What is needed? Adults in Packs, Troops, and Teams need to complete Youth Protection (Y01). Adults in Crews need to complete Venturing Youth Protection (Y02). These courses are available online. In-person courses have been offered as well. Please contact our District Training Chairman, Mike Matusheski, if your unit would like to host a Youth Protection training class. We can bring training to your unit.
If you or someone you know has YPT that will be expiring anytime this year, NOW is the time to renew it. Don't wait.
