New Parent Quick Reference

For new parents, the process of joining a troop and helping your son get settled can be stressful.  To help make the transition a little easier, we prepared a new a parent quick reference which cites useful information and tips to help from crossover through summer camp.  It contains excerpts from our Troop handbook, which is more comprehensive, but this should be enough to get you and your Scout going in the Troop.

Youth Protection Training

Youth Protection Training

Youth Protection training is designed to help you keep our youth safe from abuse. You will learn the Boy Scouts of America's Youth Protection Guidelines, signs of abuse, and how to report suspected abuse. After each section of material, you will answer questions about that section's topic. This course must be completed to earn the "Trained" emblem. Completion is noted automatically in the BSA training records database if the module is experienced online. Estimated time to complete: 40 minutes.

Getting Started - Become an Adult Leader

Adults interested in becoming a Boy Scout Leader should discuss their interests with the Troop Committee Chair or Scoutmaster. All adult leaders must complete an application and take Youth Protection Training.
