Youth Protection Training For Youth And Adult Volunteers
YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING FOR YOUTH AND ADULT VOLUNTEERS
The Boy Scouts of America and Twin Valley Council place the greatest importance on creating the most secure and safe environment possible for our youth members. Scouting has several policies in place to help maintain Scouting's position as one of the safest places for today's youth. To maintain this standing, Scouting has developed a number of resources to educate and train adult volunteers and youth members in Youth Protection.
All adult volunteers are expected to take Youth Protection Training upon registering with the BSA and renew the training every two years. All new youth members should receive the age-appropriate youth training upon joining with previously trained youth members participating every two to three years as a refresher. It is expected that every unit provides the opportunity for all members to participate in the Youth Protection Training annually.
Resources are available for units to facilitate this training and include:
Youth Protection Training for Youth
- "It Happened to Me" for Cub Scout age youth
- "A Time to Tell" for Boy Scout age youth
- "Personal Safety Awareness" for Venturing age youth
Youth Protection Guidelines for Volunteer Leaders and Parents &
