Training is an essential tool to help you as a volunteer in providing the best quality program possible to the youth you serve.  Recognizing this importance, the desire of reducing risk management and improving retention, the Executive Board of the Shenandoah Area Council requires all registered volunteers, regardless of their position, to be fully trained as required for their position.

Youth Protection Training:

Youth Protection Training (YPT) is required for EVERY TWO YEARS and recommended every year.  New leaders are REQUIRED to take this before they submit their application for registration.  The certificate of completion for this training can be printed at the end of the training session.  This session covers the types of abuse, two-deep leadership and reporting requirements.
