BSA Background Checks

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is committed first and foremost to keeping youth safe. Part of that commitment includes continually updating our youth protection policies to help ensure we are always on the forefront of youth safety.

One of our many barriers to abuse is a mandatory criminal background check during the adult volunteer application process. While the initial background check is important, the BSA wants to ensure continued safety, so moving forward, periodic rechecks of criminal backgrounds will be performed.
