Youth Protection update

We've been informed of a major change to the Youth Protection Training Requirements, in a letter from the Assistant Chief Scout Executive.

Effective June 1, 2010:
  • Youth Protection Training is required for all registered volunteers.
  • New leaders are required to take Youth Protection Training before they submit their application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.
  • Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years.
  • If a volunteer’s Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
