Youth Protection
The BSA provides training in Basic Youth Protection. Troop 827 places the greatest importance on creating the healthiest environment possible for our youth members. All Troop 827 adult volunteers and parents are asked to take this course. It covers the BSA's Youth Protection policies, types of abuse, signs of abuse, how to respond to disclosure of abuse, and proper reporting procedures. The training program does so by taking you through situations that require choices and produce consequences.
