The California Scouting website has a wealth of information for Scouting leaders related to California’s new law requiring volunteers and staff to complete training in child abuse and neglect reporting, and undergo Live Scan background checks. Read more at California Scouting.
We will supplement Council specific information on our Youth Protection page when it becomes available.
All Unit (pack, troop, crew, ship, and post) Recharters are due by Dec. 15. All the resources needed may be found on the Recharter Resources webpage (see button below). There is no access code to access the online Rechartering system. It may be access by any unit key 3 leader. Need help? Contact your District Commissioner or District Professional.
A very important requirement for Recharter is that ALL leaders must have Youth Protection Training (YPT) that is current throughout the duration of their registration (i.e. through Dec. 31, 2022).
Citizenship in Society Merit Badge
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA), one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, announced the launch of the Citizenship in Society merit badge, its newest merit badge for youth in the Scouts BSA program (ages 11-17). The new merit badge encourages Scouts to explore important topics around diversity, equity, inclusion and ethical leadership and learn why these qualities are important in society and in Scouting. Beginning July 1, 2022, the Citizenship in Society merit badge will be required for any youth seeking to achieve the prestigious Eagle Scout rank.
More information to follow as the situation becomes more clear.
