The Youth Protection Training
Shawn has had extensive experience serving the Boy Scout Youth programs.
He has become familiar with the Boy Scout Youth Protection training program, and will share his knowledge with us.
In 2015, the Insurance and Risk Management Committee of the NSSAR recommended that the state societies implement a youth protection training program for all compatriots involved with the various youth programs. One training program already in place is the Boy Scout Youth Protection training; this is required of all adults as part of their registration as an adult leader with the Boy Scout program.
Since the Boy Scout Youth Protection training program has been in place and on-line for some years, it was recommended that this training be adopted for all compatriots involved in the various youth programs; it was subsequently adopted at the CASSAR Fall 2015 Board of Managers meeting for those involved at the chapter and state levels.
The training itself is on-line, takes about 30 minutes and is valid for two years. Once training has been completed, you should print out the Certificate of Completion and e-mail a copy to Derek Brown (Youth Activities Director) at firstname.lastname@example.org. This information is also being e-mailed to all chapter officers. Please check the CASSAR youth programs web page for specific instructions.
