  • New Youth Safety Webpage
    This new webpage within Scouting.org offers an easy-to-navigate overview of our Youth Protection policies using language and visuals that help the general public or those who are new to Scouting understand what the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) does to help keep kids safe. This webpage does not replace the pre-existing Youth Protection page; instead, it offers an overview of our policies in a simplified version for those who may not be familiar with our terminology or program details. It also features expert testimonials, public access to our Youth Protection Training modules without the need to create a My.Scouting account, and clarifications of top misconceptions. We encourage you to visit and share this resource whenever you are asked what the BSA is doing to keep kids safe.
