|Youth Protection Training
This training is an
important component of the Boy Scouts of America's strategy to
protect its members from child abuse. Child abuse is a serious
problem in American society. There are over 3 million reported
cases of child abuse each year, including a half a million
cases of child sexual abuse. As the nation's largest
youth-serving organization, the Boy Scouts of America has a
unique opportunity to make an impact on this societal problem.
Scout - Fast Start Leader Training
When new leaders
join Scouting, it is essential that they receive immediate
information that will help them get started and lay the
groundwork for success in their leadership roles. This will
help new leaders to understand what is expected and to
establish effective meeting patterns so that the boys and
their families can enjoy a quality program from the start.
Fast Start training is a short video-based training
program designed to fulfill this need. It should be viewed
within 48 hours of when a new leader accepts the position.
While a new leader can view the tape alone, it may be helpful
for a knowledgeable Scouter from the Pack, Troop, or District
to view the tape with him or her to establish personal contact
and answer any questions.
