The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, and Venturing programs.
- Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers.
- The Mount Baker Council requires Youth Protection training must be taken annually. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
- All adults, parents and leaders, are encouraged to take Youth Protection Training.
- All adults who will be participating in activities in total of 72 hours (hours do not have to be consecutive) are required to take Youth Protection Training and register with the BSA.
