Our Commitment to Protecting Youth
During the week of April 22, you may have heard media reports featuring an attorney who was grossly misstating the facts as it relates to the Boy Scouts of America and our record of safety pertaining to the youth who are members in our programs. Our Chief Scout Executive, Mike Surbaugh and his team held a press conference to put some accuracy and clarity to the misinformation reported via the media. Following is the outline of that press conference.
BSA volunteers and staff should feel proud for making the BSA one of the safest programs for kids to participate in in the world because we are committed to following the BSA’s Youth Protection standards.
