Course Descriptions - Adults

General Scout Training for Adults
Youth Protection, Fast Start, This Is Scouting, and Leader Specific Training are the basic courses that every adult leader should have within 90 days of registering as a Scout Leader. These courses are now mandatory for all leaders who work with boys as of Jan 1, 2011.

Youth Protection (Basic)
The Basic Version gives a thorough understanding of the Boy Scouts of America's Policy on how to protect youth from emotional, physical and sexual abuse; and how adults can protect themselves from false accusations of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Offered online at myscouting.scouting.org.

Youth Protection (Basic and Venture Version)
The Venture version specifically addresses the changes older teens go through as they mature, and how these changes affect the way they interact with each other and adults. Many of these older scouts are still active in Boy Scout Troops; therefore, the Venture Version of this course is recommended for Boy Scout Leaders/parents, not just Venture Leaders/parents. Offered online at myscouting.scouting.org

Youth Protection (Face-to-Face)
Face to Face youth protection is required for some activities and is recommended as an alternative to the on-line version available on the National BSA website. Please watch the website for times and places. Contact the training chairman if you have questions.
