This is to inform all Cub Packs and Troops who have a Catholic Church as their Charter Partner that, the Catholic Committee On Scouting for Hawk Mt. Council is planning a Protecting God's Children youth protection seminar on January 12, 2013 at HMSR (Science & Technology building). This training is needed for any adults over the age of 18 who are active with youth in Catholic Parish or Youth Programs (like sports and Scouting) within their parish. This is a Diocesan mandated training which only needs to be completed once, and there is no cost.
If your new leaders need Protecting God's Children training, then please contact Randy Bjorken, HMC-CCOS Committee Chair.
This training will be open to any unit in Berks and Schuylkill Counties. This training supplements the BSA Youth Protection Training, and is in no way intended to replace it. Simply, if your troop is part of a Catholic Church, you need both trainings in order to meet BSA and Diocesan requirements. Thank you.
