Accepting Nominations for Community Members to Observe Eagle Character Boards
Partnerships with the community is important to us. The Pacifica District Advancement Committee is accepting nominations for community members who are interested in how BSA programs prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes. If you know of someone who is interested please take the time to nominate them today.
Youth Protection Training Renewals
Many adults are renewing their Youth Protection Training (YPT) in preparation for rechartering. Here are some important tips:
- Make sure you are taking the mandatory, NOT the recommended lesson plan.
- 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
- 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.
