Cape Cod & Islands Council is set to collect the Voice of Scouts, Parents & Volunteers in March

As part of a national Boy Scouts of America program, the Cape Cod & Islands Council is excited to announce participation in the Voice of the Scout.  With more than four million members, this program is being adopted as a way to collect experiences and deliver on the expectations of members as they participate in Scouting.

 

A link has been added to the Resources page pertaining to Scouting and Autism. Parents with autisitc children and leaders with autistic Scouts in their units will find valuable information from National BSA and other organizations.

Recently, the Boy Scouts of America announced important changes to its Youth Protection policies. The purpose of these changes is to increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting.

Effective June 1, 2010:

Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers, regardless of their position.

New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training before submitting an application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time the application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.

Youth Protection training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.

To find out more about the Youth Protection policies of the Boy Scouts of America and how to help Scouting keep your family safe, see the Parent's Guide in any of the Cub Scouting or Boy Scouting handbooks, or go to www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating a secure environmont for our youth members. To support this effort, the BSA has developed numerous youth protection resources for parents and leaders.

The Boy Scouts of America is now officially on YouTube!
