Adult Training

Youth Protection

True youth protection can be achieved only through the focused commitment of everyone in Scouting. It is the mission of Youth Protection volunteers and professionals to work within BSA to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels. BSA takes great pride in the quality of our adult leadership. Being a leader in the BSA is a privilege, not a right. The quality of the program and the safety of our youth members call for high-quality adult leaders. Download the How-To Guide for taking Youth Protection Training

Wood Badge

The purpose of Wood Badge is to develop skilled leaders who can strengthen Scouting units in achieving the BSA mission. Wood Badge course content is the same that Fortune 500 companies send their executives to learn at week-long seminars costing thousands of dollars. The curriculum has been revised to follow the model established for leader training by experts in the field including authors Ken Blanchard & Stephen Covey.
The next Wood Badge course will be the weekends of Sep 15-17 and Oct 14-15, 2023 at Cherokee Scout Reservation. Registration closes Aug 15.
