Pack 3449, along with the entire Boy Scout movement, takes Youth Protection very seriously. We know that you love your son and would never want anything bad to happen to him. Neither do we. In an effort to ensure the safety of all scouts in our pack, as well as any other scouts and children that may participate with us in activities, Pack 3449 has adopted the following policy:
In order to protect our Cub Scouts, their siblings, and all other children in our community, Cub Scout Pack 3449 requires all adults involved in our pack take Youth Protection Training and provide a copy of their certificate to their son's den leader. This applies to all leaders, parents, and volunteers involved in Pack 3449.
Youth Protection Training is online training that takes about 60 minutes to complete. In this training, you will learn about the Youth Protection policies of BSA, how to spot abuse, and how to handle and report violations of Youth Protection. There is no cost to take Youth Protection Training, and it can be taken by anyone, whether or not you are a registered adult.Click here for more information on the BSA Youth Protection page.
The Youth Protection Training program is available from the link on that page, or can be accessed directly at My.Scouting.org
