Important Changes Regarding BSA Youth Protection Training Policies

Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA. To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting, the Boy Scouts of America is implementing several important changes to further enhance its Youth Protection policies.

Effective June 1, 2010:
  • Youth Protection Training is required for all registered volunteers.
  • New leaders are required to take Youth Protection Training before they submit their application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.
  • Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.

Please contact your district executive with any questions.

Thank you for all you do to make a difference in young people. Please enjoy this weekend and keep in mind all those who sacrificed and gave their lives in service to their nation.
The Connecticut Yankee Council, BSA serves nearly 25,000 young people in Fairfield, New Haven and parts of Hartford counties. Scouting's programs encourage youth to pursue their special interests, make new friends, gain a respect for their environment, develop leadership skills and give back to their community.
