Are you considering volunteering at at Work Week this year?
This year there are a few new changes in the requirements to volunteer.
Before arrival, you must have completed online “Youth Protection Training”. You must also bring an “BSA Annual Health and Medical Record” form. If staying longer than 72 hours, you must have had a physical exam in the last 12 months and the form must be signed by your medical provider.
As before, you must also be a member of the Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association, Inc. (membership to the BSA is not required).
These new requirements are the policy of the Boy Scouts of America. Not decisions by Northern Tier or the Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association, Inc.
Youth Protection Training
To take Youth Protection training go to My.Scouting.org and create an account. You do not have to be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America to take Youth Protection training. This How-To Guide is available with step by step instructions. Once you complete the training, please print and bring the certificate. If you have not taken the new version of the training released in March 2018, you must take the new version. The training is valid for two years.
Annual Health and Medical Record
If staying 72 hours or longer: You must bring a completed BSA Annual Health and Medical Record form (sections A, B, and C). The physical exam must be completed by a certified and licensed physician (MD, DO), nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. It must have been completed within 12 months of your departure date from work week.
If staying less than 72 hours: You must bring a BSA Annual Health and Medical Record form with sections A and B completed by yourself.
You can download the health form here. You may download the instructions handout here.
We look forward to seeing you at work week. If you have not done so already, register today!
