 Youth Protection Training Policy

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members.  All adult volunteers are required to take Youth Protection Training.  Youth Protection Training covers the BSA’s Youth Protection policies, types of abuse, signs of abuse, how to respond to disclosure of abuse, and proper reporting procedures. 


All unit leaders must have current Youth Protection Training Certification in order for their unit to re-charter on December 31, 2015.   

New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training before submitting an application for registration.

It is encouraged that adults take the training via the online module at www.myscouting.orgExternal Link, but the instructor-led training is still acceptable as long as the most current version of the Youth Protection DVD is used and the end-of-course quiz is proctored by the trainer at the end of the  training session.  The current video is available here: Link and you may download the Facilitator’s Guide here:   Youth Protection Training Facilitator's Guide.pdf  

Reminder: It is critical that training completion certificates be issued.  Training certificates can be issued and leader profiles updated by a member of the Unit Key 3 on the Unit Dashboard in My Scouting Tools, or you may submit a training record roster to the council registrar so proper credit can be recorded in the profiles of each participant.  Download a Training Attendance Report here:  Training Atttendance Report.pdf
