The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members, especially when it comes to Youth Protection. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs. All potential adult leaders must be approved, must go through a background check, and complete Youth Protection training.
Scouting also provides a guide to Safe Scouting with specific details and regulations. Find our more at: http://www.scouting.org/sitecore/content/Home/HealthandSafety.aspx
