To become a trained leader, you must be registered with the Boy Scouts of America and meet the requirements for your position.
BSA continually seeks to increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting.
BSA Policy is: Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers, regardless of their position. New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training. 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.
