Youth Protection Training
Youth Protection Training is required every 2 years. There are several ways to complete the training.
For returning volunteers, if you completed the training last year (i.e., 2018) the Adult Registrar should have a record of it. Verify when you submit your health forms or send an email to check.
If your training is more than 2 years old or if you have never been trained, you need to find a course to take. Here are suggested options:
Self-Study Option. The Riverbend Retreat Center has an approved Youth Protection Training online that other organizations can use. You can find the materials and exam HERE.
Girl Scout of Central Texas Option. The Girl Scouts of Central Texas has developed and online course that includes 8 short videos. It will take 1 hour of uninterrupted time. You will
receive a certificate after completing the course that will need to be provided
to the Adult Registrar. The course is available at:
Other. There are other approved courses available. You can find the approved list of programs published by the Department of State Health Services by going to: https://www.dshs.texas.gov/cpm/training.shtm and then downloading the PDF document (updated 7/31/2018). Look for courses that starts with YC (rather than CMP) and that have an expiration date beyond 2017.
