Did You Know?

You do not have to be a registered member or have a member ID to create a MyScouting account and take Youth Protection training online.

When volunteers receive their BSA membership cards, which include their member ID numbers, they should log back into MyScouting, click on “My Profile,” and update the system by inputting their member ID numbers. This process will link their Youth protection training records, and any other training, in MyScouting to their BSA person profile.
