Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA.
To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting, the Boy Scouts of America has implemented mandatory Youth Protection training for registered adults. As recharter season approaches unit leaders and committee chairs are STRONGLY encouraged to review your leadership training records and ensure that your leaders have all taken youth protection training. DO NOT LEAVE THIS UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE. Missing training records will delay renewal of your unit's charter.
