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:

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.
