Important reminder about Dues and Recharter

Posted on Nov 28 2021 - 2:28am

Our troop’s charter renewal is coming up in December, which is just a few weeks away.  This year, BSA has established new Youth Protection Training requirements that will affect our troop’s charter renewal. 

Any adult with a YPT certificate that expires during 2022 or before will not be allowed to register with the troop’s charter renewal this December.  This is a significant change that affects almost all of our adult volunteers.   Please plan to recomplete your YPT training at your earliest convenience so your registration will not be affected. 

If you have a YPT training certificate that expires in 2023 and you have not forwarded me your certificate, please do so at your earliest convenience and I will add to my file.

Currently, we only have about 12 adults who have sent in their certificates and are eligible for recharter.  That leaves around 25 who still need to recomplete the training to become eligible.

The YPT course is online and broken into three parts: Overview and Policies, Sexual Abuse and Bullying. It will take about 1-1.5 hours to complete. You can access the training video and questionnaire at: http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx. 

Once you have completed the training, please send me a copy of your completion certificate and I will print and keep on file. Please note it takes about an hour after course completion for your certificate to be available to download.

Thanks so much,
