The Chief Seattle Council office be closed to the public until year end. Support staff will be available Tuesday – Friday from 10am – 5pm via phone and email. Shop will be closed indefinitely. Please read this announcement (updated 11/16) for more information.
As of February 1, 2018, all Scouting adults take the same Youth Protection Training. It will be recorded as Y01: Youth Protection Training Certification, but will satisfy the requirement for all programs. It still needs to be taken every year.
Chief Seattle Council has written a help sheet for you: How to take Youth Protection Online Training. This training should automatically post to your Scouting record.
If this is your first time taking online training there is also: Setting Up a my.Scouting.org Account. Save your login and password because only one can be tied to your registration and give you credit for your training.
Still having trouble? Contact membership@SeattleBSA.org, or 206-725-5200.
In Chief Seattle Council, adults registered in a Scout group must complete Youth Protection Training annually.
Chief Seattle Council requires Youth Protection Training to be taken annually, whereas the national policy is every two years. Because online reports were built on the National Council's systems, the computer assumes a two-year expiration date. This date can be misleading, because Chief Seattle Council volunteers are required to renew annually instead. Look at the date taken vs. the expiration date to determine when you need to renew your training.
Adult-leader membership will not be renewed if Youth Protection Training has not been taken in the previous year.
YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ADULTS
The Boy Scouts of America requires Youth Protection training for all volunteers. The purpose of this policy is to increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist in Scouting.
