Opportunities for Labor Day are coming up. You can sign-up for Placement or Pickup on our calendar.

New Youth Protection Training for Adults registered with BSA & Troop 380.

Posted on Aug 1 2018 - 10:51am

The new online Youth Protection Training (YPT*) for adult volunteers in BSA is now available for your training.  If you choose to be a registered adult volunteer with BSA, and work with youth, you must satisfy the requirements BSA has in place to protect youth and itself.   This requirement will not “go away” – it is mandatory and tracked via computer at the Council/National level.  This is a new online course.

https://www.scouting.org/training/youth-protection/  <--Link

Once you have completed the NEW YPT – please submit a printed copy of the record to John Dobrott, (YPT champion), or to Todd Heidelbaugh (TCC) or Manasi Mantry (registrar).  You have through Sept 30, 2018 to complete the training.  See the helpful HowtoGuide (pdf) attached to get going on new YPT right now.

*YPT is managed by BSA National and as an adult volunteer working with youth - you are responsible to make sure the "computer record" at Council/National is up to date.  If you have difficulty or technical issues contact BSA National Help Desk: (972) 580-2489.

Do you require more “outside” words on this matter?  Do you need further discussion on this topic or want more information before taking the course?  Please open and read the attached pdf article from “Bryan on Scouting”.

Yours in Scouting,
John Dobrott - YPT Champion
Manasi Mantry - Troop 380 registrar
Matt Dorsett - Scoutmaster
Todd Heidelbaugh - Committee Chair

Brooke Adams as Social Media Chair

Hello, I'm excited to join the T380 Committee as Social Media Chair. Did you know that our troop has active accounts with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter? If you haven't already, please follow Troop 380 on these social media sites for the most current pictures of our boys, troop accomplishments, and updates. Likewise, if you or your scout have photos that you'd like us to consider for social media posting, please email them to socialmedia@boyscouttroop380.org.  We do have a wonderful troop photographer but since she can't capture each and every moment, we strongly encourage Scout participation in documenting their activities.
