On Saturday 9th June, South Cowichan Rotary Club members Leslie Grills, Gay Wise and Tony Jackson attended the Youth Services day at VI, Nanaimo. The morning focused on the Youth Exchange Officer (YEO) requirements and the afternoon on the Youth Protection Officer (YPO).

You will see in the slide that there are a number of requirements that have to be achieved by the club:

In addition to these, there is training required for every member in Youth Protection plus the addition of Criminal Record Checks. As you can see one of the requirements is for each club to have a Youth Protection Officer (YPO). Leslie will be giving much more details on this over the coming weeks and all are asked to support Leslie positively in her search for a YPO.
