Youth Protection

Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader

If you had a magic wand, would you use it to make the Scouting program better and more fun for youth so they stayed in Scouting longer, so it had a larger impact on their lives? What if the same magic wand made leadership roles easier, more rewarding, and led to better retention among adult leaders? Would using that magic wand be a top priority?

Youth Protection Training

Youth protection training is required for all adult leaders and volunteers registered in the Boy Scouts of America. It is renewable every two years, and a current, unexpired training certificate is required for rechartering, or renewal of membership in the BSA.

Youth Protection training can be taken online at or in-person at council training sessions. Any upcoming in-person youth protection training sessions will be indicated on the calendar to the right of this screen.
