Youth Protection Mission Statement

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


Required Training

  • Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers and must be turned in with the adult application.
  • Youth Protection training must be taken every year. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.

My Scouting UPDATE:

Eliminating Confusion - vs.

With the confusion regarding where to go to access certain tools, significant changes will be made to both the and my.Scouting Tools sites over the next coming weeks.

Starting Thursday, July 16, the following program links will be removed from's column list and become accessible in my.Scouting Tools under Legacy Web Tools in the Home menu list:

* Internet Advancement

* National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course

* Service Hours Reporting

Additionally, the National Office is doing some general housekeeping by removing outdated links and resources. More changes are coming, so check back often as we work to make my.Scouting Tools the one place to go for all your needs!
