It is time! Time for all Trainers & Chapters to update your Operational Membership.
Trainers - if it has been more than two years since we've seen you at a Train The Trainer you'll need to recertify at the Conference (June 8-10) or the October Training (18-19).
Chapters (Program Sites, Clubs, etc.) - you are required to update annually with a renewal fee, new signed Operational Use Agreement and submitting quarterly/annual reports back to the Home Office.
You would really help out our staff by going ahead and completing your new Operational Membership Agreement and submitting it prior to us reaching out. A friendly reminder, these are required if you are using any of Yellow Ribbons materials & training. If you have questions please Email and we'll gladly help.

A BIG Thank You to all who donated to Yellow Ribbon this past year. Your gifts of time and your finances helped that we could reach more with suicide prevention. We've estimated over 11,000 hours volunteered last year and have surpassed 18 million Yellow Ribbon cards distributed since we began. We can't wait to see what we'll all do for suicide prevention in 2018!
As a YR Trainer you're required to re-certify every 2 years, if it's been a while or about time, join us for the next TTT Feb 8-9 in Westminster, CO. Adults and Youth are encouraged to attend for recertification or your first time to learn all about Yellow Ribbon & Suicide Prevention.
You won't want to miss the next Yellow Ribbon Conference.
This #GivingTuesday we need you to join us and #Give5 - 5 minutes a month to talk about suicide prevention, 5 social interactions on your social network each month, and $5 a month. Our goal; 5,000 - take a look at the math when we reach that goal and begin to see with us the lives that will be impacted. It's a simple as each of us Giving 5! Join us.
Chapters & Trainers
The Operational Membership/Use Agreement that you signed when you started with Yellow Ribbon has been updated. Part of that change is moving from "Chapters/Program Sites" to "Chapters", a couple levels of chapters, but it will simplify language/definitions across the YRI Network.
Chapters & Certified Trainers alike, are required to update & re-sign annually in order to operate & use the Yellow Ribbon program & its materials. Trainers are now required to renew/recertify every 2 years by attending a 2-day Train The Trainer.
We will be looking for all Chapters to get your Membership updated with a new Use Agreement signed & Chapter fee paid in the beginning of 2018. If you'd like to expedite the process please email and we will get you updated now, online renewals will be available soon. For Trainers, put Feb 8-9 on your calendar for our next TTT .
If you have any questions please let us know. We look forward to updating and streamlining how the YRI Network provides the greatest suicide prevention program to our communities around the globe.
