Youth Protection BEGINS with YOU
The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our members. Youth protection is of paramount importance and requires sustained vigilance. To cultivate a safe environment, the BSA continues to develop and enhance its youth protection efforts as everyone continues to learn more about the dangers and challenges facing youth.
The BSA has established a multi-tiered youth protection approach focused on volunteer screening, education and training for everyone in the program, and clear policies to protection youth. You can download a copy of the BSA Youth Protection Infographic here.
