The BSA is very careful and takes youth protection very seriously.
Every adult leader undergoes a background check.
Since we are in Pennsylvania, every adult volunteer or person interacting with youth also has a state police criminal background check, a child-line child abuse clearance check, and if they have live in PA less than 10 years, an FBI background check.
In addition, our scout council has a mandatory training policy so that every adult leader must complete training for their position so that the program is operated safely and in accordance to all national policies.
The BSA follows a mandatory 'no one on one contact' and 'two deep leadership' requirement meaning that no adult is ever alone with a scout.
This includes phone and text conversations as well.
The Guide to Safe Scouting
specifies the requirements to engage in any activity and stipulates the requirements for qualified supervision.
