Youth on Youth Abuse Training & Citizenship In Society for Troop Leaders
Peer-to-peer bullying and abuse is on the rise amongst youth across the nation. With more than 1 million Scouts, the Boy Scouts of America has a responsibility to lead on this issue and take steps to reverse this trend by empowering our Scouts, leaders and parents with knowledge, awareness, and prevention skills.
The BSA training “Understanding and Preventing Youth to Youth Abuse” is an optional training for adults and a required training summer camp staff.
With Summer Camp around the corner, this is an opportune time for every Scout leader, parent, and adult to become keenly aware of what occurs at schools, in sports and could happen between our Scouts. This course covers how to prevent, recognize, respond to, and report inappropriate youth-to-youth abuse and problematic behavior.
The subject matter of this meeting will be serious and could be jarring for some of our members. It will encompass physical, mental, and sexual abuse that is occurring between kids and teens across our country. Together, we can be at the forefront of solving this growing problem. We as parents and leaders will come away with new awareness and new tools to help guide our Scouts to “be kind” and live evermore by the Scout Oath and Law.
