Absolutely correct, Art. If one has served as District Training Chairman
trying to work out a way to encourage these young leaders to attend
training with their busy schedules or on the Council Training Team trying
to schedule training courses to fit college vacations or military leaves, this
method of registering with YPT, which can be easily complete on-line, is a
God-send, (well, National send). These positions have been available for a
couple of years, and units are encouraged to make use of them. Remember
the numbers, right or wrong.

You all are missing the point here folks; both of these "positions"
allow youth members that "age out" at 18 or so retain their tenure in
Scouting without any additional "training" requirements other than
A youth in a Troop that turns 18 is often retained as an ASM, which in
many councils now, requires all the adult training to qualify;
registering these youth in the Units as "reserve", allows them to stay
involved when they're home, but does NOT drag down the Units training
"stats" nor does it stop recharter for lack of training.
It's a very valuable "option" for both Troops and Crews to have and
was previously only available as an "option" under council
