Youth Protection Training Required for Registered Leaders

Learn about adult and youth training programs

Youth Protection Training is Required for all Registered Leaders!

It is REQUIRED that all Scouting leaders take Youth Protection Training and are current with the training at recharter time. If you haven’t already done so, please go to www.my.scouting.org and create an account using your BSA ID # to access this training. If you ever have any concerns about other leaders and their compliance with youth protection rules (two adults at all times with all Scouting youth, both “inside and outside” of Scouting events; separate sleeping accommodations; separate shower/bathroom facilities) call the Northern Star Council Youth Protection Tip line at 1-888-213-0364.

Youth Protection Training for Youth is also extremely important. This training should be made available annually to all new families, and to all youth every two years. These videos are available at: www.northernstarbsa.org/youth-protection and include: “It Happened to Me” for Cub Scouts, “A Time to Tell” for Boy Scouts, and “Personal Safety Awareness” for Venturers. Parents of Cub Scouts must be invited to attend a viewing of the video training with their son. Resources to do so are available at: http://training.northernstarbsa.org/info/YouthProtection.aspx.

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 Training for Adults

  • Youth Protection Training Guidelines for Volunteer Leaders and Parents (also available through BSA’s online learning center at my.scouting.org)
  • Youth Protection Training for Adult Venturing Leaders (also available through BSA’s online learning center at my.scouting.org)

Please conduct the appropriate Youth Protection Training for Youth and Adults in your unit at least once a year, prior to your unit’s rechartering process. Thank you for taking the time necessary to ensure that all Scouting volunteers and youth members have a safe environment to experience everything Scouting has to offer.
