Pardon my lack of knowledge but does the GS have a required YPT course like the BSA does?  And are GS leaders mandated reporters?  Thanks.

My understanding is that GS leaders need to do a comprehensive safety course that includes awareness of sexual abuse situations, as well as things like cyber safety, being safe at fundraisers, etc.    

Yes, GS leaders are also mandated reporters (that is usually required by state laws, so mandated reporting will apply regardless of what kind of youth program you are dealing with).
