Youth Protection Overview
Five Point Strategy
Guiding the BSAs Youth Protection is a five-point
strategy to prevent child abuse:
The Three Rs of Youth Protection Members of the Boy Scouts of America are taught the Three Rs of Youth Protection. This stresses that the child needs to RECOGNIZE situations that place him at risk of being molested, how child molesters operate, and that anyone can be a molester. The child needs to know that if he RESISTS, most child molesters will leave him alone. And, if the child REPORTS attempted or actual molestation he will help protect himself as well as other children from further abuse, and will not be blamed for what occurred.
