Youth Protection Training Changes

Effective September 1, 2017, the National Executive Board has approved the following changes with respect to Youth Protection Training. As you know, our council policy since 2012 has required Youth Protection Training (YPT) for all adult leaders at the time of registration.

Because of the addition of online registration, unit leaders must be sure to obtain copies of the completion certificates from the leaders who register online before approving their application.  This will make the rechartering process much easier.  Any applications that are sent to the Rolley Scout Service Center for entry will still require a copy of the completion certificate before we can process them as usual.

With the upcoming renewal cycle, the Internet Rechartering system will be updated so that units cannot submit the registration renewal of any adult who does not have current YPT as of the effective date of the renewal. Completion of YPT as part of the online registration system will be required in a future update.

Effective for the 2018 BSA summer camp season, any adult accompanying a Boy Scout troop to a residence camp or other Scouting activity lasting 72 hours or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training, even if they are the parent of a youth on the trip.

Please Note: Although YPT is strongly encouraged for adults attending any overnight activity, at this time, the requirement applies only to individual adults staying three or more nights at a resident camp. Criminal Background Checks are conducted on every prospective leader as a part of the registration application.
