Youth Protection

Please take the time to take the new youth protection training. Youth Protection must be done by 9/30/18. A bit more info below from our council

The Boy Scouts of America introduced a new and vastly improved Youth Protection Training (YPT) program in February 2018. This new program is so improved and profoundly different that every registered adult is required to take it by 9/30/18. This is regardless as to the expiration date shown on your existing YPT certificate. In fact, BSA has modified the expiration dates of any YPT taken before 2/2/18 to September 30, 2018.

The new “YPT 2.0” can be taken on-line
