Youth Protection Update
A current Youth Protection Training (YPT) certificate is required for EVERY adult member in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) organization and thus validation is required for ALL adult membership positions in any BSA Unit. The safety of the youth is the top priority of the BSA organization and is taken very seriously.
The YPT certificate is valid for 24 months and must be renewed (kept current) or the adult membership will be dropped. The YPT training can be completed on-line at www.myscouting.org or in a classroom environment. If the training occurs in a classroom environment, then the Unit (Pack, Troop, Crew, Team, Ship or Post) is responsible for updating the adult membership training record. Thus, if there is internet access and the adult has access to a computer, the adult can re-certify their YPT anytime.
