Don't Forget: Your Youth Protection Training has to be updated every Two Years ...

Posted on Oct 10 2014 - 11:40am

... This Means You!  Because most of the leaders in the Southern Crescent District need to renew Youth Protection Training before the end of this year -- here is the District and Unit by Unit Snapshot of who needs YPT as of October 10.  To take it online, log into your profile at www.MyScouting.org (if you forgot your Username or Password, follow the instructions on that page to retrieve it).  You can do the Training live using the Youth Protection Training Facilitator's Guide that you can conduct in your own units, and then any current registered "Key Three" of the Unit can "enter training" for other current leaders in the new https://my.scouting.org/ website through Training Manager -- How?  See the How to Update Training Records Slides in our Leader Training page.  Congratulations Troop 919, Pack 1030, Troop 1906, Pack 1341, Pack 717, Troop 373 -- of your current registered leaders are "good" through 2014 ... every other unit: you've got some current leader who is expiring before 12/31/2014, so if they are to stay on your charter, you need to get their Youth Protection Training updated now.  Who? See the District and Unit by Unit Snapshot of who needs YPT as of October 10.

Posted on Oct 7 2014 - 8:17pm

This is an eBlast from your District Website (if you forgot the Login, email the Webmaster), accelerated from the usual Wednesday wakeup, since we have two important opportunities to help us help kids. This Thursday Oct. 9 at 7 at Woodward's Middle School is the Roundtable for Leaders and Parents, including Youth Protection Training and helpful friendly courteous kind sharing of ideas about how to play the game of Scouting (social time and snacks at 6:30).  Then this Saturday October 11, an encore of the Cub Parent and Leader program which will be the last one for fall 2014 in the District.  We'll start at 10 am and wrap about 2:00 pm or so, and then start a Youth Protection Training if needed.  The new location is World Changers Church International, 2500 Burdett Rd, College Park, GA 30349, in the Fellowship Hall.  Please register here in this On Line Survey or contact the Cub Leader Trainer to sign up so we have enough materials.
