Youth Protection

GGAC specific requirements for YPT Certification.

All GGAC adult volunteers must be registered with the BSA and be Youth Protection Trained (YPT) to ensure that all adults know how to recognize and correctly report behaviors suspicious for grooming and abuse. On May 19, 2021 the GGAC Executive Board adopted a YPT policy to reinforce our awareness of Youth Safety. GGAC now requires that all registered adults 18 and over maintain YPT compliance for their entire registration period. As it is currently possible for YPT to expire during that period, this may require the adult to refresh their YPT training on an annual basis.

My Scouting sends reminders at 90, 60, and 30 days prior to YPT expiration. The BSA updated its YPT course materials effective June 1, 2021. The online training course has been updated to be more user friendly than past versions.
