Crater Lake Council believes protecting our Scouts is the most important thing we do. To this end, we have adopted the policy of keeping all leaders current on Youth Protection Training.
Beginning in November 2022, we will take monthly steps to ensure all active leaders are Youth Protection Trained.
- Monthly unit Youth Protection Report. A copy of each unit’s list will be emailed to all Key-3 and commissioners indicating those leaders that have lapsed or are soon to lapse Youth Protection Training. Units should be checking their leader’s Youth Protection Status monthly. Click here to learn how to check your Unit # Youth Protection at my.scouting.org
- A 30-day warning letter to all leaders with youth protection will expire in the next thirty days, reminding them that if their youth protection training is not updated, their leadership will be suspended. That same letter will be sent to unit key 3.
- Suspension of Leaders. Leaders who allow their YPT to expire will have their membership suspended upon expiration. A letter will be sent to them and the unit Key-3 stating that the suspended leader will no longer count as a registered leader for Two-Deep Leadership. Leaders who fail to renew their YPT at that time may have their membership revoked. If membership is revoked, the leader must reapply, pay fees, and complete YPT.
To support this effort, the Crater Lake Council is excited to announce the recruitment of a Youth Protection Champion, Heather Obrien. Heather has been active for over ten years, most recently as the New Member Coordinator for Troop 9036 in La Pine, OR.
Meet Our Youth Protection Training Champion Heather O'Brien!
My name is Heather O’Brien. I am the new YPT Champion for the Crater Lake Council.
On most days I am your typical Scout parent, making sure my son is ready for all the adventures Scouting has to offer. My involvement in Scouting began 10 years ago when we lived in Kodiak, Alaska, where I was the co-leader for my son’s Bear Den. More recently I served as a Committee Member and New Member Coordinator for Troop 9036 in La Pine, Oregon.
Youth protection is a critical component to Scouting to ensure that everyone is having fun in a safe, respectful manner. Crater Lake Council believes protecting our Scouts is the most important thing we do. To this end we have adopted the policy of keeping all leaders current on Youth Protection Training. Beginning in November 2022 we will run the YPT report every second Thursday of the month. All correspondence related to YPT that will come from me at CraterLakeYPT@gmail.com.
