Every child deserves a safe scouting experience. Our first step in ensuring scout safety is making sure all scouts and scout families are trained in accordance with the BSA's youth protection training.
Pack 405 requires that all scouts complete the Youth Protection Training in their scouting hand book with the guidance of a parent. Completion must be signed off by your den leader.
In addition, Pack 405 requires under BSA guidelines that at least one parent of guardian of each scout be trained in Youth Protection.
ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST HAVE AN UP TO DATE YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING CERTIFICATE PRIOR TO ATTENDING ANY SCOUTING FUNCTIONS. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE TO THIS REQUIREMENT.
Please follow these steps to complete your Youth Protection Training:
You do not have to be registered member of the Boy Scouts of America to take Youth Protection training.
To take Youth Protection training go to My.Scouting.org and create an account. You’ll receive an email notification with your account information, including a member ID/reference number.
From the My.Scouting.org portal, click Menu then My Dashboard from the menu list. The My Training page displays to take Youth Protection training. Upon completion, you may print a training certificate to submit with a volunteer application. Your training will automatically be updated in our system and associated with the memberID/reference number issued when you created the account.
When your volunteer application is approved, you will receive a BSA membership card that includes your member ID number.
Once your YPT is completed please send a copy of your training certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org and Telzeyhome@yahoo.com so that we can update our records.
Scouts for whom at least one parent has not completed the youth protection training will not be allowed to participate in group scouting events until completed.
