From, Michelle Vermilye:
I just logged on to the Rio Hondo website to see if Youth Protection was being held during Roundtable, and, yes, it will be.
For those of you who need to take Youth Protection or renew your Youth Protection training, it will be held at Roundtable on Wednesday, January 20, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at First United Methodist Church, 13222 Bailey St, Whittier, CA, 90601 (uptown Whittier, across the street from the Red Cross).
Parents who intend on attending scouting events need to be Youth Protected. This is your opportunity to get the training needed and get you on your way to Troop 54 activities. This training is for adults only and children will not be allowed in the training class.
One last thing about YP training... YP training has to be completed every 2 years (not my rule, or Troop 54's rule, but BSA rules). Some of your YP training is expiring in April 2010. So you may want to take the training during Roundtable. Also, you may take the training online. Visit the Rio Hondo website to find out how.
And new parents... this is an opportunity for you to get trained. Don't wait til the last minute and find yourself trying to get training before an event.
