      We have 10 youth that turned 18 years old after Jan. 1, 2019. None of them have filled out an Adult App or completed YPT. So the way I understand it…they can’t attend any Troop outings. So why do they still show on our roster in my.scouting? Do I have to manually remove them? (Yes I know they will drop at recharter but some these boys turned 18 in Jan or Feb. ) Help me understand the logic.

      Youth (Classified as Youth Adult (YA) 18-21) still can be a member of the OA as a “youth” until 21 as a member of a Scouts BSA troop. I believe they do need to have youth protection however. Also, they have paid for the entire year, so it would be free to get them converted to an ASM or College Reserve just by completing a form. Keep in mind that Youths are a member of other BSA programs until the age of 21 and the system is just not that smart. (Venturing and Exploring)

      Thanks for the answer. It sounds like their is no specific logic to it… just a system that is not smart enough to remove them from a TROOP roster. (Seems it would be really easy to do though)
