Youth Protection Program
We strongly encourage all parents to read BSA’s information on Youth Protection and take the 20 minute Youth Protection Training (you don’t have to be an adult leader to take the training).  Links to Youth Protection are provided below.  It is the responsibility of all parents and adult leaders to review and understand the principles of Youth Protection, and most importantly, exercise those principles at all times when scouts are present.
Get information on Youth Protection here.
Take “Youth Protection” training here.

For the new scouts that have not received their blue Troop 228 T-Shirt that comes free with their initial registration, they are now available.  If you would like to purchase an additional T-shirt for you or your scout, the cost is $15.  Hoodies are for sale for $32.   Please contact Loreen Soto at loreens@icloud.com to coordinate pick up of your shirt and or sweatshirt order.
