Scout Safety & Youth Protection Certification
Scouting and Pack 58 places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for Cub Scout programs.
We strongly encourage all parents to educate themselves on these principles. Parents are required to read the Parent Guide every year and discuss Youth Protection with their children.
All official leaders are required to re-certify in Youth Protection every 2 years and it is the highest priority for the Pack to ensure these rules are a big focus.
Please talk to our Cubmaster, Rob Dellinger, with any questions, concerns or suggestions on how we can ensure the safety of our boys and girls at all times.
UPDATE FROM CUBMASTER DELLINGER, August 2019...
Please see the official response to recent media reports from BSA's National Youth Protection Director, Michael Johnson... I think this is very well stated and I'm personally very satisfied with the leadership, training & tools BSA provides to keep our kids safe:
As Mr. Johnson states, the FREE on-line youth protection training was refreshed in 2018... I really think its informative & well-done. Please help us by getting your own YPT certification, whether you are an active leader or just a concerned parent.
As always, I will make myself available to address any concerns.
Sincerely, Rob Dellinger
