Youth Protection Training Modules Update

Updated Youth Protection Training Modules

Over the decades, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in developing training and policies designed to keep young people safe. Over time, these policies have become standard with organizations across the nation. True youth protection can be achieved only through the focused commitment of everyone in Scouting. It is the mission of Youth Protection volunteers and professionals to work within the Boy Scouts of America to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels.

We have heard your feedback and are now releasing updates to the mandatory online Youth Protection Training to include items such as:
• New mobile friendly design.
• Updates to the certification test to make questions less ambiguous.
We will communicate when this new release is available – the target date is June 1st, 2021. It is recommended that anyone who has started the online training prior to this date complete the training as the new versions will cause the loss of any progress in a module.

Build an adventure

Scouts do stuff. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together.

Set goals and clear them. They go places. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. Bricks that eventually form a foundation. One a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. For the parents watching in awe, it’s not a question of where their Scout will go, but where won’t they go.

Changes to

Unit management is about to get easier with the retirement of ScoutNET 
You’ve been asking for updates to the functionality of BSA tech products. And, with ScoutNet’s retirement, we’ll be better equipped than ever to deliver technology that meets the requests of units and councils to manage registration and rechartering effectively and electronically.


Soon, you’ll find the following improvements made to some of your most frequently used tools:
· Registration and charter renewal tools moved to My.Scouting, where our existing online registration site lives.
· New registrar features on My.Scouting, like a new dashboard offering advanced search, person maintenance and additional reporting features.
· For all units with a December 31 renewal date, expect a simplified recharter system for both internet and paper rechartering within Internet Advancement 2.0.
· New unit self-service tools on My.Scouting:
o This month, a new feature called Position Manager will be added to the My.Scouting tools allowing units to change the registration position of anyone in the unit – no paper application required. For example, if a Cubmaster steps down and a unit committee member replaces her, the unit’s chartered organization representative or their designee can adjust her position without delivering paperwork to the council.
o In addition to the inter-unit transfer feature added this winter, parents and volunteers will be able to transfer to a unit in a new council without filling out transfer forms and new applications – and their records will be automatically transferred to the new council.
These are just some of the changes coming your way as My.Scouting continues to grow in supporting the needs of units and councils in the Boy Scouts of America.
