Youth Protection Training is required for all BSA registered volunteers. Golden Spread Council requires Youth Protection Training to be valid for the entire registration period. In other words, the expiration date of each leader’s training must be later than the expiration date of their registration. Youth Protection Training is available online or through a facilitated course.
