Scouting safely starts with Youth Protection Training and is so much more.
Youth Protection Training
April is National Youth Protection Awareness month
Oregon Trail Council is committed to 100% Youth Protection Training for its leaders and is promoting the annual renewal of this most important training. If you believe in the importance of keeping our Scouts safe, we challenge you to take or renew your Youth Protection Training between April 1 and April 30 each year. If you complete the training in April, you are eligible for a special Youth Protection Training patch. Show your commitment to the safety of our Scouts by earning your 4 YPT trained patch each year in April.
