New Youth Protection Training -- If You Last Took it Before February 2018, Take it Again NOW

Posted on Oct 16 2018 - 11:57am

All new and currently registered leaders are required to complete BSA’s brand new Youth Protection Training (also known as "YPT2") -- see more here.  As previously announced, YPT2 is now available via BSA’s "Learn Center" -- and now the modules have been streamlined ot allow quicker view with less "loading" delay.  A big difference (and complicating factor) is that there isn't a "one and done" 28 minute video any longer.  Instead, there are four modules, you have to take them all, and pass a quiz in the final module.  The first module is "Overview & Policies", the second is "Sexual Abuse", the third is "Bullying", and the final is called "YPT Certification" and includes a quiz.  Very different from the former look -- first module (Overview & Policies) has a mixture of graphic slides and professionally shot videos (think PBS "Frontline").

Two More Cub Leader Trainings Coming!

Posted on Oct 9 2018 - 5:53pm

Most every unit can benefit from more parents becoming helpers, doing things with their kids and their friends, and becoming assistants, co-leaders and leaders of a Den or in your Pack.  So round up a pack of parents and spend a few hours of orientation with them about Scouting.  Even if you've taken training before, taking parents and leaders out to these sessions will allow you to get on the same page with them to help the kids in your Pack, and help you all Keep It Simple, Make It Fun! 

So join us for Cub Scout Parent/Leader Orientation Session scheduled for:

If you're a Leader, you probably want some more helpers to be leaders too ... so come to training this weekend!  Bring a car full of other parents and prospects.  

If you're not a Leader, but hope others will be leaders ... come to training this weekend!  Bring a car full of other parents and prospects.
