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.
