Recharter time is fast approaching and all Merit badge Counselors need to be rechartered if they wish to continue as a Counselor. In order to continue, each counselor's Youth Protection training needs to be updated for the coming year. If yours has expired or will expire next year please retake the training between now and December 1st and e-mail a copy of your certificate to Whiteoakadv@aol.com. If there are any changes to the Merit Badges you counsel, please sent a notice naming the badges to delete or send a copy of the Meritbadge Counselors Application listing the new badges. Include your YPT date and BSA ID numbe on all copies.
