Youth Protection Training Required Annually

To insure that every leader’s YP training is current, Cascade Pacific Council has joined the other council’s in the Western Region to require annual updates to Youth protection.  If your last training was 2014 or earlier, it will not be accepted for the 2015-2016 charter renewal.  “We must make protecting our youth our highest priority. Our nation is looking to us to set the standard and lead.” -Todd McDonald, Program Director
