Merit Badge Counselor Training on Monday, 9/27

Posted on Sep 13 2021 - 7:32pm

To all Troop 42 Parents,

Pam Fosnes will be conducting a Merit Badge Counselor Training session on Monday, 9/27 at 6:30pm.  This is your opportunity to get better connected with your Scout's Troop.  Becoming a Merit Badge Counselor allows you to approve Merit Badge work done by Scouts according to your schedule.  YPT (Youth Protection Training) is required and there are three forms to complete.  Having a YPT certificate will allow you to attend Scouting events also.  You'll need to have it all ready prior to the session.  Please refer to the calendar entry for more details.                                                  Mr. Mattos
