Youth Protection Training (YPT)
Youth Protection Training Directive
National Council released a change of policy regarding Youth Protection Training. As of June 1, 2010, all registered adults must have Youth Protection Training. The change affects new leaders coming into the unit who must have the training prior to registering, all adult leaders who will renew their membership at the end of December, Merit Badge Counselors, Charter Representatives, and anyone that wants to be part of the unit. Adults are 18 years of age and older.
In June (2010) the Youth Protection team announced a summer training schedule, the schedule has been canceled.
Now we will be doing the Training at the Roundtables in each district this fall, in September, October, November, and December. The team can also accommodate special written request from units. Request must be submitted three weeks in advance to email@example.com
For more detailed information on training times and locations contact your District Coordinator list below. For any other information contact Ana Lily at 714-546-4990 or Deanna Westmyer at 714-968-4073.

The Youth Protection Team will continue to provide the program on a monthly basis at the five LDS Centers, (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) in Orange County by Council approved trainers. Anytime you suspect child abuse in scouting you are required to report to appropriate authorities. Each registered adult is required to take Youth Protection Training every 2 years. No R.S.V.P needed, just show up. See menu item Training Schedules - Orange County Council - YPT & VYPT - See the 'YPT & VYPT flyer' for YPT & VYPT training schedule information. You can also take the Youth Protection Training Course online. If this is your first Youth Protection Training, we recommend that you attend the live training first before taking the course online.
This one and one-half hour course is required to cover the youth protection policies of the Boy Scouts of America. For certain outings this training is required. A certificate will be issue upon completion of training and it is good for two years. The Video starts at 7:30 P.M. so plan to arrive by 7:15 P.M. to register (sign-in); once the presentation begins, no one will be admitted. You must stay for the entire presentation to become certified and receive your signed and dated Youth Protection card.
There is no charge for this training. You may purchase a Youth Protection patch for $2.50 at the training or the Council Service Center or South County Scout Shop in Laguna Hills.
Although this is not the ideal way to see the Youth Protection Video, we do try to provide the service to get everyone certified. On all Tour Permits, one person on each outing must be trained and certified in Youth Protection.
Remember: The video, "A Time to Tell" is available to show to Boy Scouts and "It Happened to Me" is available to show to Cub Scouts with a parent present. Both videos are available for purchase at $5.00 each at the Scout Service Center front desk or available on loan (free of charge).
In 1995 the Quality Unit Award stated that every unit must have a coordinator for Youth Protection. Beginning in 1996, each unit coordinator is responsible for:
1. Making sure the adults are Youth Protection trained and
2. That the unit shows the youth video to its members at least once a year. (prior to attending summer camp)
