Most Councils are showing a short subject 24 minute film on Youth protection as
part of the basic leader training program. This isn't the same thing as Youth P
rotection (YPP), and will not qualify the watchers for certification.

Your district Health and Safety committee should be providing YPP both on a per
unit and district wide basis. I can't imagine *any* Council having no knowledg
e of the YPP certification program. The actual cards are a numbered BSA item.
Your Scout Executive is responsible for laying out a YPP in concert with the loc
al council attorney, for maintaining records of participants, and for establishi
ng a functional reporting policy all members of the council.

I'll try to post the order number this afternoon for you, but I believe it shoul
d be provided by either a designated YPP professional at your Service Center off
ice, or by the Training Program professional. Here at Circle Ten, we have a pro
fessional whose responsibilities include YPP, Drugs-A deadly Game, It happened t
o Me, A time to tell, etc. and ensures that these programs get Distributed.
Note to Kathie: After our protracted YPP discussion a couple of weeks ago, I we
nt down to our Council office to get the straight poop. Next thing I know, I've
been nominated for the our local district Health and Safety committee.
Sheesh. Lessee, that makes Council Committee, District Committee, Scout Troop,
Cubpack - Four shirts. Ho boy. That'll teach me to open my big mouth.
