So I completed both New Leader Training and Cub Scout Essential training today. I never knew, as a Scout, all the stuff that went on behind the scenes to make a Troup or Pack run, and let the leaders be leaders. I mean, wow.
And then tonight I took the online version of the Youth Protection Training. They aren’t playing, and they want both Scouts and Leaders to be able to address any concerns, suspected abuse, etc. swiftly and appropriately. I’m really gad, for my kids’ sake that they do this, and glad that I have to not only take a course of some kind but also have to pass a test to be certified.
(And in the fine tradition of patches and insignia, one more course to take and I get the nifty “Trained” patch for my uniform. Can’t resist a new patch, now can I? *grin*)
