The BSA has announced new policies to ensure compliance with mandatory training requirements. Prepare your staff and volunteers to address them before June 1, 2018:

  • Effective June 1, 2018, adults accompanying a Scouting unit who are present at the activity for 72 total hours or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training. The 72 hours need not be consecutive.
