Both Scouts BSA and the Archdiocese of Washington have programs in place to help ensure protection of the youth under our supervision. In order to be an adult working with the scouts, the following steps must be followed:
1-Complete the BSA adult application form at http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-501.pdf . Everything is on one page; the rest are copies, so only complete one page. We are Troop 380 in the Washington, DC District of the National Capital Area Council.
2-Register at my.scouting.org, and click on the Youth Protection logo on the opening page after login. At minimum, take Youth Protection Training, but there are several other learning plans in the Scouts BSA section of the catalog that would be good:
Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster
Troop Commitee Chair
Marit Badge Counselor
3-Sign up for the Archdiocesan child protection program, Virtus:
