Youth Protection Training Requirement Effective
May 1, 2016
“Every boy deserves a trained leader,” is a well-known phrase among veteran Scouters. The Three Fires Council takes the physical and emotional safety and well-being of our youth seriously. The need to have every registered adult mindful of the BSA's Youth Protection guidelines is essential to providing a safe and productive program.
All adult leader applications must be accompanied by a copy of the Youth Protection Training (YPT) certificate. This includes new applicants, transfers, and multiple positions. Applications received without a YPT certificate will be held for 30 days for processing. If a YPT certificate is not received within 30 days, the application will need to be resubmitted.
