Take Youth Protection Training Today!
Youth protection can be best achieved through the shared involvement of everyone in Scouting. This includes Scouting professionals who are expected to increase the awareness of Youth Protection policies, make training available to everyone, encourage all Scouting units to include personal safety awareness education in their programs, and ensure youth protection is considered in all council-sponsored activities; volunteers and leaders who must create a culture of awareness and safety within their units and councils, and ensure their units follow the BSA’s Youth Protection policies; parents who should monitor and participate in their children’s activities and teach them personal safety skills; and anyone who becomes aware of possible abuse within Scouting and must report any suspicion to the proper authorities for review and investigation.
Click here to access the free online training modules (including Youth Protection Training). If you take the YPT module (approx. 30 minutes) please save a PDF of your certificate. Better yet, forward it to pack leadership so we have proof of that training. All leaders must have valid certificates on file, and it doesn’t hurt to have every adult in the pack have this on file. The safety of the boys is priority one, help us guarantee it.
