Pacifica District


Pacifica District’s Spring Camporee
April 22-24, 2022


Pacifica Annual Awards Dinner - Postponed

With the recent surge of Omicron we feel it would be best to postpone our February 24th District Dinner.

We are going to keep an eye on this surge and if it appears we can comfortably reschedule back at our outdoor location, Rock N Brews in Redondo Beach, we will in the near future.

We will keep everyone posted. If it is not possible we will then choose to place this on Zoom.

Fingers crossed everyone!

Warmly,
Kelly Barry
Pacifica Chairman

Youth Protection Training Renewals

Many adults are renewing their Youth Protection Training (YPT) in preparation for rechartering. Here are some important tips:

  1. Make sure you are taking the mandatory, NOT the recommended lesson plan.
  2. There are four mandatory modules. Take a screen shot of each module completion, preferably with a timestamp if possible.
    • Overview and Policies v2
    • Sexual Abuse v2
    • Bullying v2
    • Certification Test v2
  3. Once you have taken a screen shot of your module completion, DO NOT CLICK NEXT. Instead, exit your browser window and start the subsequent module "fresh" from the "Mandatory YPT Course" screen.

By following these steps, you should receive a certificate within 24 hours. If you experience problems, please contact your unit's Training Chair or servicing Commissioner.
