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.

IOLS is an outdoor, hands-on course designed to expose adult Boy Scout, Varsity, and Venturing leaders to First Class scout skills using the EDGE Method and presented in a Troop/Patrol setting. Presentations include flag etiquette, Leave No Trace, Interfaith worship, knots & lashings, wood tools, fire building, cooking, map & compass, first aid, backpacking, plant & animal identification, and more. SM/LST focuses on the Aims & Methods of Scouting, Troop Organization, the role of the Scoutmaster and the scouting support structure. SM/LST will be presented Sunday for those able to stay the whole weekend.
Why? Every youth deserves a trained leader! All adult direct contact leaders in Boy Scout, Varsity and Venturing with outdoor programs must have IOLS and SM/LST to be considered “trained” and wear the “Trained” patch. Both are required for Scoutmasters, Advisors and their assistants to be re-chartered.

All BSA registered adults may attend. Participants MUST have completed current “Youth Protection Training” prior to course.
