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.

Youth protection training is a requirement to be an adult volunteer or participant in Boy Scouts of America.  While you do not have to be a registered member to take youth protection training, to fully participate and register with BSA, youth protection training must be current.

Wilderness First Aid is a 16-hour course that is specifically designed to teach you how to respond to any number of first aid emergencies that might occur where Emergency Medical Services are more than one hour away.

Not only does this training apply to wilderness situations but it may also prove very useful at distant Troop/Crew/Pack camp outs and events, personal family events and non-Scout related events.
