Kevin Doyle asked for a source for the YPP requirement for Quality Unit.
Here is what was said in Scouting, Jan-Feb 95 (p. 43):
"Beginning in 1995, each pack, troop, team, and post must assign the
responsibility for youth protection training to an assistant unit leader
in order to qualify for the National Quality Unit Award.
"The individual makes sure all registered adults receive current youth
protection training. She or he should also coordinate educating parents
of the dangers of child abuse. The unit leader might also ask this
assistant to aid in using appropriate BSA videos and printed youth
protection material to educate the unit's youth members."
While it does not say specifically that the assistant must himself/herself
have been trained in YPP, it would be certainly much easier to do the job
if she/he had experienced the training.
I also anticipate seeing a future requirement that all unit leaders
MUST BE trained in YPP.
