Warning:  Your Youth Protection Training May Be Expiring in 2020

Youth Protection training (YPT2) was revamped 2 years ago this past February. Most volunteers will need to re-take the mandatory training for Youth Protection (YPT2) as it is only good for 2 years.. Please remind your volunteers to retake this important training.
