Unit Charter Renewal

Recharters are due November 30, 2021.

Internet Rechartering is a Web-based method for units to renew their charters from any online location—at home or at the office. It’s easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information yourself.

Internet Recharter Version 2.0 was released on October 15, 2021 for all units to submit their renewals online. Internet rechartering may be accessed by the Unit Leader, Charter Organization Rep, Committee Chair or Key 3 delegate by logging into their Scoutbook.com or My.Scouting account  https://advancements.scouting.org/login  

YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING (YPT) 

Why is Youth Protection training so important? It communicates the values that Scouting takes seriously. 

Who should undergo Youth Protection training? Everyone. All registered Scout leaders, any Scout parent who attends trips or campouts, merit badge counselors, and anyone with a connection to youth. If you’re a past member, current member, parent, or volunteer, you should be Youth Protection trained.

The Heart of New England Council Executive Board established the expectation and directive that all registered adult members have a Youth Protection Guidelines Training Certification that will not expire until after the unit charter does.  For example, if the unit charter runs from January 1, 2022 until December 31, 2022, ALL registered adult volunteers Youth Protection Certificates must expire after December 31, 2022.  Any Adult Volunteer who fails to comply will be dropped from the Units Charter and them must submit a new adult application, Cori/Sori Form, CBC Form and proof of completion of Youth Protection Guidelines Training in order to be reregistered.
