Youth Protection Training
The Boy Scouts of America places great importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. The BSA has developed numerous procedures, leadership selection policies and resources to maintain this environment. Youth Protection Training is one of these resources and is required for all BSA registered volunteers. Training is free, provided online and expires after two years. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be re-registered.
