Youth Protection Training ensures boys involved in scouting are kept safe. Mandatory for unit-level leaders. At least one adult on every Scout outing must be Youth Protection Trained.
"The BSA places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. All Cub Scout and Boy Scout adult volunteers should take this course. It covers the BSA's Youth Protection policies, kinds of abuse, signs of abuse, how to respond to disclosure of abuse, and proper reporting procedures. It does so by taking you through situations that require choices and produce consequences. Successful completion of this course requires an 80 percent or higher score."
