|Over the decades, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in developing training and policies designed to keep young people safe. Over time, these policies have become standard with organizations across the nation. True youth protection can be achieved only through the focused commitment of everyone in Scouting. It is the mission of Youth Protection volunteers and professionals to work within the Boy Scouts of America to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels. |
We have heard your feedback and are now releasing updates to the mandatory online Youth Protection Training to include items such as:
>> New mobile friendly design.
>> Updates to the certification test to make questions less ambiguous.
Youth Protection is Required Training:
>> Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers and is a joining requirement.
>> Youth Protection training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of re-charter, the volunteer will not be re-registered.
