Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law
By Tesha Omeis - Lafayette District Executive

All Scout Volunteers. Please read!


Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law

Recently the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania passed a new law known as the Child Protective Services Law. The intent of this law is to protect the youth of Pennsylvania. All youth serving organizations within the Commonwealth are covered under this new law. Volunteers, registered and unregistered, in the Cradle of Liberty Council are affected in two ways; we are mandated child abuse reporters and required to provide background check clearances.


Please VISIT HERE FOR MORE INFO and for the steps volunteers need to take in order to get clearances and submit them to the Cradle of Liberty Council.

 Do you have something you would like to see in the Lafayette Leaf!

Would you, your scout, your Pack, your Troop or your Crew love to be featured in the "newspaper" that is in the hands of 1200 Scouters?  Did your Unit do something really awesome?  Did your Scout complete his Eagle project? Or Eagle Court of Honor.
