Adult Leader Training Information
Common sense tells us training is important, and research shows the importance of trained leaders. A trained leader is knowledgeable and more confident in the role being performed. Trained leaders exhibit a knowledge and confidence that is picked up by people around them. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, safety, and a whole lot more. To take online training courses, including Youth Protection Training, please visit My.Scouting.org.
Youth Protection Training
- All registered troop leaders, Merit Badge counselors, and parents who go on camping trips and act as drivers are required to take youth protection training.
- All concerned parents are encouraged to take youth protection training. It helps to understand what the training entails, and once completed permits one to volunteer "at the last minute" to go camping or to help with other troop outings (e.g. white water rafting, climbs, canoeing, hikes, etc.)
- Youth Protection Training must be retaken every two years.
- Youth Protection Training is for the protection of both scouts and leaders.
