Youth Protection and Training

All registered leaders must complete Youth Protection Training, submit to a mandatory criminal background check, follow policies on two-deep leadership and no one-on-one contact, and are required to report any signs of abuse as a mandatory reporter.  Also, Scouts and parents receive educational materials on youth protection in the first section of the Scout Handbook. Our latest Youth Protection guidelines are available at

If you have been a victim of abuse or have any information about suspected abuse, please reach out to our 24/7 Scouts First Hotline at 1-844-Scouts1 for immediate assistance. For more on what the BSA is doing to keep kids safe, please visit:
