The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs. 

 Effective June 1, 2010, the Boy Scouts of America adopted a Youth Protection training program that is required for all registered volunteers.  Please click on this link to the BSA's website for more information.

In addition, being part of the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte, our Pack requires active parents & guardians to take a 3-hour course named Protecting God's Children.  This program is non-denominational, non-religious program gives adult guardians tools to recognize and combat child abuse, particularly child sexual abuse.   Most organizations that work with children have some type of child safety awareness program. Through the Protecting God’s Children program, we maximize those efforts by helping churches and religious organizations refine their roles as child-safe environments and empowering caring adults to protect children. The VIRTUS® programs assist the Church in being a safe haven for children and a messenger for preventing child sexual abuse.
