Youth Protection Update

Hi Sapona Scouters! 

I wanted to pass along some new information regarding YPT (Youth Protection Training). 

As you know in the past, this certification expires every 2 years. There is a new change from National for 2017 where this will need to be renewed on an annual basis moving forward. As a result, I would ask that all units ensure their leadership teams are up-to-date. 

I am happy to help provide any reports you may need to help determine compliance in this area, so feel free to reach out to me.

The YPT course is available online ( and will take less than 30 minutes to complete. If you have folks that do not wish to take it online or do not have the ability to do so, just let me know and we will arrange to come out and teach a class if needed.
