YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING -- MANDATORY FOR ALL REGISTERED ADULTS
Youth safety is the number one concern of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting, the BSA is implementing several important changes to further enhance its Youth Protection policies.  Effective June 1, 2010:

  1. Youth Protection Training (YPT) is required for all registered volunteers.
  2. New leaders are required to take YPT before they submit their application for registration.  The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time the application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.
  3. YPT must be taken every two years.  If a volunteer's YPT record is not current at the time of recharter (December), he/she will not be reregistered.
  4. There are three versions of YPT - (1) Cub/Boy Scout leaders, (2) Venturing leaders, and (3) Exploring leaders.  You must take the one corresponding to your registration(s).  If you are registered in multiple units, you must take all that apply.

Youth Protection Training is available online at MyScouting.org.
