Spread the Word About the Importance of Youth Protection with New Posters -

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 the BSA to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels.

To help you spread the word about the importance of this effort, the Youth Protection Team has several new posters available for you to use in your unit meeting location.

The following posters are available for download:
