One of the BSA’s many barriers to abuse is a mandatory criminal background check during the adult volunteer application process. The BSA will now also perform periodic rechecks of criminal backgrounds to support the continued safety of youth in our programs.


Please complete the process listed below at your earliest availability to help us continue to provide the safest environment possible for our Scouts and leaders.
