Youth Protection Training

Youth Protection Training

Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers and is a joining requirement.

Youth Protection training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be re-registered.
