At Troop 175. we seek to create as safe an environment as possible for young people to enjoy our program's activities. The Boy Scouts of America Youth Protection training addresses strategies for personal safety awareness for youth as well as adults. Youth Protection training is available online at www.MyScouting.org and IS NOT only for Leaders. It is important for all adults that interact with our scouts to be aware of the BSA rules and regulations regarding the safety of our scouts!
It only takes less than 30 minutes and is done completely online!
You do not have to be a registered member or have a member ID to take Youth Protection training. To take Youth Protection training go to MyScouting.org and create an account. From the MyScouting.org portal, click on E-Learning and take the Youth Protection training. Upon completion, you may print a certificate of completion to submit with a volunteer application or submit the completion certificate to the unit leader for processing at the local council. If you decide to volunteer and your volunteer application is approved, you will receive a BSA membership card which includes your member ID number. After you receive your membership card, log back into MyScouting, click on My Profile and update the system by inputting your member ID number. This will link your Youth Protection training records, and any other training, in MyScouting to your BSA membership.
The Boy Scouts of America's Youth Protection policies protect our youth as well as help protect adult volunteers. These and other key policies are addressed in the training: • Two-deep leadership is required on all outings. • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. • Privacy of youth is respected. • Separate accommodations for adults and Scouts are required. • Units are responsible to enforce Youth Protection policies.
