What Makes a Trained Leader?

To be registered with the Marin Council, BSA, an adult must complete Youth Protection Training and show proof of completion at the time of application for membership.
Plus, it must be renewed every 2 years in order to remain registered. Without renewal, adult members will be automatically removed as members during the re-chartering process at the end of each year.
