Attention Adult Leaders - YPT Announcement

Posted on Oct 17 2014 - 2:44pm

Rainbow Council is requiring that all Adult Leaders; Troop and Committee whose Youth Protection Training Certificates may expire before December 31, 2014 renew their YPT Training Certificates before the Troop turns in its Charter.  In the coming days each adult that volunteers for the Troop will be notified if your certificate is in this window.  This is important for us because we cannot include your name on the Charter if you are not renewed prior to the deadline of December 6th.  Turning in the Charter by that date makes the Troop to be eligible for Journey to Excellence recognition.
