Popcorn is Coming!

  • While our popcorn kick off does not begin until September, our troop is able to set up our online presence to sell to family and friends.  By clicking on the Trails-end  link below, scouts and parents are able to create a profile with pictures and any details they would like to share like perhaps their rank, some favorite merit badges they’ve completed and of course what their online sales goal is.  It looks and feels much like a GoFundMe page.  Some troops have already sold thousands of dollars by promoting their online page!

Youth Protection Training

Over the past two years, the BSA has worked with experts in the field of child abuse, child sexual abuse and maltreatment to develop new training and resources that will further strengthen our ability to protect youth. These changes include:

  • Fully updated and revised Youth Protection Training developed with leaders in the field of child abuse prevention and includes insights from experts, survivors and the latest strategies for recognizing and preventing major forms of abuse. This is the designated Youth Protection training for all adults.
  • Expanded youth protection content across all our communications channels will inform and engage our volunteers and parents.
  • An expanded National ScoutsFirst Helpline to aid volunteers and families in addressing potentially dangerous situations.
  • The BSA also provides unlimited counseling and support for healing to anyone who has ever been abused in Scouting.
  • Youth protection training for youth members will be available in 2019.

By October 1, 2018, all new and currently registered leaders will be required to complete the updated training. The enhanced and updated content will allow leaders and councils to comply with all current legal requirements. While this may be inconvenient for some, it reflects the BSA’s commitment to the safety of all youth.

This training is now available on my.Scouting at  https://my.scouting.org/
