Youth Protection

Your Child’s Safety: Our Top Priority

Boy Scouts of America’s number one priority is the safety and protection of your child while involved in any Scouting activity. For this reason, we work closely with out chartered organization, Ridgeview Classical Schools, to help recruit the best possible leaders for Pack 198. We take great pride in the quality of our adult leadership and in the national application review process. Each registered adult leader goes through an extensive background check and is required to take Youth Protection Training courses every two years. Pack 198 also requires all parents and guardians to take Youth Protection Training before interacting with youth.

As a major youth-serving organization, the Boy Scouts of America has a unique opportunity to help protect the youth of our nation. In addition to helping families address the problem of child abuse, BSA has adopted a comprehensive set of policies and procedures designed to ensure that Scouting continues to be safe for all participants. BSA in a national leader among youth-serving agencies in addressing the potential threat that child abuse poses to young people.
