Per new guidelines required by the Boy Scouts of America, effective immediately upon turning in Adult Applications it will be required to present a Youth Protection certificate of completion. Please be aware of this change, and understand that adults will not be registered until their training is complete. Both the application and youth protection training certificate are to be submitted to the Anthony Wayne Area Council office.
To complete Youth Protection Training, go to my.scouting.org and find links to complete training there.
