GSHCC’s mandated reporter training for our volunteers launched February 1, 2022. We encourage you to complete this as soon as possible so your volunteer experience is not interrupted. As an appreciated volunteer, we know you understand the importance of keeping girls safe.

The State of California recently adopted Assembly Bill 506, adding all youth service organizations to the list of organizations whose volunteers and staff must complete training in child abuse and neglect reporting, become mandated reporters, and undergo Live Scan background checks (which you'll learn more about in Phase 2 of our roll-out). 

The mandated reporter training can be met in one of two ways: by completing the two-hour online training provided by the Office of Child Abuse Prevention in the State Department of Social Services, OR 
if you have taken the training within the last two years, and it meets the state’s AB 506 requirements, you can upload proof of completion. 

We ask that you please complete the mandated reporter training by Thursday, June 30, 2022. 

Our commitment is to provide as much support as possible to ensure our volunteers are not severely impacted by time/travel issues.  We will continue to update you on this process, but want to make you all aware of the new requirements.
