Imagine a world where more people are committed to keeping kids safe. The BSA is serious about fighting child abuse, and you are an important part of that fight.

The BSA has announced bold, wide-ranging updates to its Youth Protection program as part of an ongoing effort to protect young people from child abuse.

This starts with an enhanced online Youth Protection training course all volunteers and professionals must complete.

Scout leaders who took the previous version of Youth Protection training have been asked to log into My.Scouting.org and complete the updated Youth Protection course by Oct. 1, 2018.
