    • “As always, the BSA’s top priority is the health and safety of all youth participating in BSA programs. In 2020, the BSA instituted several modifications to rank requirements and merit badge requirements (“advancement modifications”) to accommodate activity restrictions necessitated by COVID-19. Effective March 01, 2022, those modifications will be removed, and the standard rules for advancement and merit badges will again become effective.”
      • Please follow this link to the Guide to Advancement (GTA), which remains the primary source for information related to Scouts BSA advancement. It is referenced throughout the answers provided here. Please send additional questions to [email protected].

  • Added December 18, 2021: GGAC eNews Special Edition – Announcing New Youth Protection Measures in 2022.

 

  • Added October 1, 2021: GGAC specific requirements for YPT Certification (https://ggacbsa.org/youth%20protection/)
    • All GGAC adult volunteers must be registered with the BSA and be Youth Protection Trained (YPT) to ensure that all adults know how to recognize and correctly report behaviors suspicious for grooming and abuse. On May 19, 2021 the GGAC Executive Board adopted a YPT policy to reinforce our awareness of Youth Safety. GGAC now requires that all registered adults 18 and over maintain YPT compliance for their entire registration period. As it is currently possible for YPT to expire during that period, this may require the adult to refresh their YPT training on an annual basis.
    • My Scouting sends reminders at 90, 60, and 30 days prior to YPT expiration. The BSA is also updating its YPT course materials effective June 1, 2021.
      • If your YPT training is not current or will expire before December 31, 2021, you should complete the course as soon as possible.
      • If you started the training, but do not complete it by May 31, 2021, you will have to retake the course.
      • If your YPT training is current, you do not immediately have to take the updated course, but you will need to ensure compliance with GGAC policy.
