It doesn’t matter if you just joined Scouting or have 20 years under your belt as a Scoutmaster: you can learn something new. Scouting trains all of its adult leaders, as well as its youth leaders. Youth leadership training is critical to the success of the Scouting program at the Boy Scout and Venturing level, because the youth carry out the program and work with fellow members to reach program goals set for the year.

Youth Protection Training

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for Scouting programs.


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

Certain tools are available on your my.Scouting portal based on the role or position that you have in Scouting. For example: If you are a Key-3 leader in a unit (unit leader, committee chair, or chartered organization representative), you have the ability to manage your unit’s roster, print membership cards, update profile information for members of your unit, create and manage sub-organizations, and add training. The same can be said for districts, but a district Key-3 would have the ability to do that for their district and each of the units within that district.
