Welcome to the . . .

San Tan District

 

Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA.

With Summer upon us, We want to remind all our scouts, leaders, and families to have a safe, fun, and adventurous summer.  We look forward to seeing you back at the beginning of School.

To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting, the Boy Scouts of America is implementing several important changes to further enhance its Youth Protection policies: Effective June 1, 2010:

  • Youth Protection Training is required for all registered volunteers.
  • New leaders are required to take Youth Protection Training before they submit their application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.
  • Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be re-registered.

To find out more about the Youth Protection policies of the Boy Scouts of America and how to help Scouting keep your family safe, see the Parent's Guide in any of the Cub Scouting or Boy Scouting handbooks, or go to http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx.

The following website contains answers to some of the questions we have received about these important changes. To read more, visit www.scouting.org/youthprotection.
