We Are the Champions


Underscoring the BSA’s ongoing commitment to keeping young people safe, the National Youth Protection Committee has created the Youth Protection Champions program. Champions will be identified at the regional, area, council, district, and unit levels. Jim Wilson, national executive board Youth Protection chairman, says that the


selected Champions will recruit Youth Protection leadership, support training and strat- egy development, and advise on all matters relating to Youth Protection. “They will be the focal points and key drivers of Youth Protection at their assigned levels,” Wilson says. The Champions will also serve as administrators assisting in implementing new Youth Protection programs, and as BSA Youth Protection advocates ensuring that YP training is available and facilitating or leading various training sessions. Region-level Champions and some area Champions have been identified, Wilson says. Councils


and units should be in the process of making their selections. Further details and requirements for Champions can be found at bit.ly/YPchampions. On a related note, the ScoutParent designation is being phased out. ScoutParent was never an officially regis-


tered BSA adult position, and so it was not required for those designated to take Youth Protection training, and no criminal background checks were made on these individuals. This created confusion in units because some people thought ScoutParents did, in fact, have these qualifications. Former ScoutParents are encouraged to officially regis- ter as adult volunteers.
