Youth Protection Training

The Boy Scouts of America require that ALL registered leaders in our program be Youth Protection Trained.  As a Pack, however, we strive to have EVERY PARENT (registered as a volunteer or not) to be trained.  Why?  It's free.  It's easily accessible online.  It requires a mere 20-30 minutes of your attention.  Plus, face it, it's just a good idea in any youth program to have everyone on the same page.

To take Youth Protection training go to My.Scouting.org and create an account. You’ll receive an email notification with your account information, including a member ID/reference number.

From the My.Scouting.org portal, click Home then My Dashboard from the menu list. The My Training page displays to take Youth Protection training. Upon completion, you may print a training certificate or save it to .pdf to e-mail to Pack leadership.  Training will be automatically be updated in the BSA's system and associated with the member ID/reference number issued when you created the account.  If you are a registered BSA volunteer, you can insert your BSA membership ID number into your account profile so that they are linked.  If you don't know your BSA membership ID number, you can go back and enter it at any time.

Of all the things we do for the boys -- this one is vital to the safety and integrity of our program. Please take the time to complete YPT training today.  The online module certification is good for two years.
