Training This Weekend!

Posted on Aug 14 2018 - 6:46pm

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.   

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! 

  • We have a Cub Scout Parent Orientation Session are scheduled for Saturday, August 18, 1:00 to 4:30, at Woodward Academy's Middle School Cafeteria.  You can sign up here or here for Saturday, August 18.
  • And an encore on Sunday, August 19, also 1:00 to 4:30, also at Woodward Academy's Middle School Cafeteria. You can sign up here or here for Sunday, August 19.  
  • Also available on Sunday August 19 is a Live Youth Protection Training, 1:00 to 3:00, on the small side of Woodward Academy's Middle School Cafeteria,
  • And a Merit Badge Counselor Training (for Counselors to older Scouts, not Cub Scouts) at 3:00 to 4:30.

Knowledge is Good!  Trained Leaders Have More Fun! 

New Youth Protection Training -- If You Last Took it Before February 2018, You Have To Complete by October 1

Posted on Aug 14 2018 - 6:41pm

By October 1, 2018, all new and currently registered leaders will be 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").  Evidently, a syllabus for "live" courses will be available in June, 2018. 

Opt In, Opt Out

If Your Pack Has Lots of Leaders -- and You Don't Want Any New Leaders -- Don't Read This Message.   

But if your Pack could 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, your life will be happier and more fulfilled if you round up a pack of parents and spend a few hours of orientation with them about Cub 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! 

The next two Cub Scout Parent Orientation Sessions are scheduled for Saturday, August 18, 1:00 to 4:30, with an encore on Sunday, August 19, also 1:00 to 4:30, at Woodward Academy's Middle School Cafeteria. 

You can sign up here or here for Saturday, August 18 and here or here for Sunday, August 19.  Signups help us be sure we have enough materials for you.  

Also available on Sunday August 19 is a Live Youth Protection Training, 1:00 to 3:00, on the small side of Woodward Academy's Middle School Cafeteria, with a Merit Badge Counselor Training (for Counselors to older Scouts, not Cub Scouts) at 3:00 to 4:30.
