The BSA places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members.
This course is required for Venturing leaders who have direct contact with youth. This training will help leaders understand and guide youth through possible problems as it relates to abuse. You will also learn about the issues you may face as a leader to help provide a safer environment for the crew members and to protect yourself from false accusation
Youth Protection Training for Venturing is available online at www.myscouting.org.
Units may request group training by contacting one of your District Training Chairs or your District Executive. A minimum of 5 participants is required.
