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.

Click here to login and take Youth Protection Training.  Additionally, person to person trainings are also available.  Contact your unit or district training committee team members to find opportunities.

Position Specific Training:  What you need to do to be a “Trained Leader”  For more information about training in the Boy Scouts of America, see www.Scouting.org/training .

Training is offered both online via your www.My.Scouting.org login.  Additionally, we recommend person to person training so that you can benefit from the experiences of mentors, find others who are volunteering just like you, and sharpen your skills.

Speaking of mentors, are you going to Roundtable?  It’s not just a committee meeting.  It is the best face to face interaction with your leader peer group and it’s just for you! Exchange information, learn new hands on skills, games, and it can be quite fun! Keep your Scouting game sharp and spend time with  your Scouting Volunteer peers! Each district has a Roundtable meeting each month that is led by their own volunteers.  See your district page for information on dates and locations for your own Roundtable!
