Take Youth Protection Training 2 by October 1, 2018

Youth Protection Training 2

Over the past 108 years The Boy Scouts of America have instilled the values of the Scout Oath and Law in millions of youth, preparing them to make ethical decisions while facilitating a secure environment for their development. Safe Scouting practices and youth protection are at the heart of the Boy Scouts of America and the Atlanta Area Council’s mission.

In order to continue providing a safe and secure environment for today’s youth, the Boy Scouts of America have developed a new version of the Youth Protection Training program taken by all volunteer and staff. The new training, which is fully supported and endorsed by the Atlanta Area Council, launched to the public this year.

Youth Protection 2 must be completed by all registered leaders either online or in-person by October 1, 2018.
