Youth Protection Training (Adults)
Youth Protection Training is Required Every Two Years
Youth Protection training is required every two years. This protects children, adult leaders, and the organization by maintaining high vigilance on the important subject and methods of youth protection.
New Leaders need to complete youth protection training and turn in their Youth Protection Training Certfificate with the Adult Application to the Service Center to be registered.
Unit Leaders: Unit renewals are effective January 1st each year. In preparation for renewal or registering as a new adult, adult unit leaders need to demonstrate completion of age-appropriate youth protection training:
Standard Youth Protection Training (Y01) for pack, troop and team leaders
Venturing Youth Protection Training (Y02) for crew and ship leaders
Exploring Youth Protection Training (Y03) for post, and group leaders
Taking the Training
My.Scouting.org is the best place to take the Youth Protection Training Course. Log in and click on the Youth Protection Image on the top right.
If you have not done so already you will need to login as a new user and create an ID. Once you have taken the training print out the certificate. If you have problems with your user ID you can call the National Help Desk at (855) 707-2644.
Presenting the Training to a Group
Units can show the Youth Protection Training video to leaders and submit the roster to the council. You can request a copy of the Youth Protection DVD from the Scout Service Center.
