Youth protection requires sustained vigilance. That is why the BSA has continued to develop and enhance its youth protection efforts as everyone continues to learn more about the dangers and challenges facing youth. The BSA has established a multi-tiered youth protection approach focused on volunteer screening, education and trainings for everyone in the program, and clear policies to protect youth.
All registered adults are required to complete Youth Protection Training within 30 days of submitting a completed BSA application. Log in to your MyScouting account and complete the training online today.
