A note about Youth Protection Training:

Blackhawk Area Council’s policy for Youth Protection Training (YPT) requires an adult’s YPT training to be valid for the entire length of a person’s charter at the time of renewal (January 1 – Dec 31).

For example: A leader who took YPT training in April of 2020 would show as YPT compliant until April of 2023. However, for the 2023 calendar year that leader’s Youth Protection Training will expire prior to December of 2023, thus not being Youth Protection trained for the duration of the charter period.  That leader would need to retake YPT training before their charter renewal could be completed. Please note that the online rechartering system will not flag this leader as noncompliant as the system follows the national two-year term.

Is paper rechartering an option?

Yes. If a unit would like to recharter without using the online rechartering system it is possible. Units that choose this option need to reach out to their District Professional.
