The safety of all members of the Boy Scouts of America is a number one priority of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council and should be a top priority for every Chartered Organization, Unit, Leader, and Parent. Youth Protection Training covers the BSA’s rules and guidelines for working with youth in the Scouting movement and is required for every registered adult Scouting leader. Parents and any other interested party are also encouraged to take Youth Protection Training to help ensure that youth protection policies are being followed.
