Youth Protection Updated Version

At the end of February, the online YP Course will be replaced with an updated version.

If you have started—but not completed—the current Y01 Youth Protection Training:

You must complete the training before March 1, 2019, or any progress you have made will not transfer, due to the new learning plan. Otherwise, you may simply start over with the new training plan on March 1, 2019.

If you HAVE already completed the current Y01 Youth Protection Training:

You WILL NOT be affected. You DO NOT have to retake the training when the March 1, 2019 course is released.

This update will include new policies and procedures implemented since the course was first released in February, 2018, however our Youth Protection and Health and Safety policies, guidelines and procedures are continually being updated and revised. The on-line version of the Guide to Safe Scouting is the single most up to date source of our commitment to Safe Scouting.

Youth Protection certifications will continue to be valid for a two year period.

When the course update is complete, four new VOLUNTARY modules will be added and will be available under the “VOLUNTARY programs.”  These include:

  1. Physical Abuse
  2. Neglect
  3. Emotional Abuse
  4. Witnessing Violence

These new, VOLUNTARY modules will provide leaders with knowledge about other forms of abuse.
