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 https://www.scouting.org/training/youth-protection/

Youth Protection Training can be found at My.scouting.org

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: https://www.scouting.org/training/youth-protection/

 

Reporting Violations of BSA Youth Protection Policies

If you think any of the BSA’s Youth Protection policies have been violated, including those described within Scouting’s Barriers to Abuse, you must notify Old North State Council Scout Executive at 336-378-9166 for the safety of our Scouts. Steps to Reporting Child Abuse:

  1. Ensure the child is in a safe environment.
  2. In cases of child abuse or medical emergencies, call 911 immediately. In addition, if the suspected abuse is in the Scout’s home or family, you are required to contact the local child abuse hotline.
  3. Notify Old North State Council, BSA Scout Executive Ed Martin at 336-378-9166.
