Youth Protection

Since 1910, Scouting has been a special place for children. Even in today’s world, Scouting remains one of the safest places for a youth to be involved.

“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 Mission Statement by Boy Scouts of America 

Youth Resources for Parents and Leaders

The BSA has developed the following resources to help educate our members and leaders about how to keep our youth safe.

  • It Happened to Me, designed for Cub Scout-age youth 
  • A Time to Tell, designed for Boy Scout-age youth
  • Personal Safety Awareness, designed for Venturing-age youth
  • Youth Protection Guidelines for Volunteer Leaders and Parents
  • Youth Protection Guidelines: Training for Adult Venturing Leaders
  • Youth Protection Statement Handout (PDF)

Click here to view or download the Youth Videos and Facilitator’s guides.

 

Note to Adult Leaders:

  • We encourage you to adult leaders to use the video trainings as they see fit for their Unit. We suggest showing the age-appropriate video to Unit youth members and their parents approximately once per year. Upon completion of the video, the Unit should record the date of the training and the names of those who participated. Click here to download a Training Completion Worksheet.
  • Please remember: These videos share our BSA safety policies with our youth members. A youth member is more likely to report an inappropriate situation if he or she knows that the situation does not follow BSA policy.

Thank you for all you do to help keep our Scouts safe!

 

Adult Leader Youth Protection Training

As of January 1, 2016 Bay-Lakes Council will require all adult leaders to have completed Youth Protection Training within the last 2 years.  If Youth Protection Training has lapsed for any adult member, their BSA membership will be suspended until completion of this most important coursework.

Youth Protection Training course is accessible through my.scouting.org.

NOTE:  Tips for accessing my.scouting.org:

  • The best internet browser to use when accessing my.scouting.org is Google Chrome.
  • If you have not yet set up an account, you will need to do so on your first visit. 
  • Be sure to list your BSA Membership ID # in your account profile.  Without this ID#, your training records will not automatically update in the membership database, ScoutNet. Your Membership ID # is located on the bottom of your membership card.

If a Unit leader would like to host a group presentation of:

  • Youth Protection Guidelines for Volunteer Leaders and Parents
  • Youth Protection Guidelines: Training for Adult Venturing Leaders

Please request the DVD and a Facilitators Guide from Center for Scouting at 920-734-5705. Upon completion of the video, the Unit should record the date of the training and the names of those who participated. Click here to download a Training Completion Worksheet

NOTE: Non-registered persons may take Youth Protection Training but will not receive the electronic certificate of completion. Credit for the training will still be granted. If you are in need of the certificate for an upcoming event/trip, any of the materials stating the course was completed and passed will suffice (example, a screen shot of the final “completion” page).
