Today's youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing, and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America introduces the Cyber Chip. In developing this exciting new tool, the BSA teamed up with content expert NetSmartz®, part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® and training expert for many law enforcement agencies.

Netsmartz® has created a Scouting portal showcasing Cyber Chip resources, including grade-specific videos, for each level. Check it out here.

Natural Disasters - Be Prepared

Posted on May 18 2014 - 6:55pm

With extreme weather conditions here upon us we need to help our Cubs Scouts not only learn from natural disasters but also how to deal with it emotionally. With Cub scouts it’s not just about doing your best it’s also about learning the Boy Scout motto of “Be Prepared”  someone once asked Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, “Be prepared for what?" and he replied with "Why, for any old thing."

It is a challenge to be prepared for emergenhttp://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Media/Publications/~/media/Images/pubs/emergency/ep200.gif.ashx?w=200&h=200&as=1cies in our world of man-made and natural phenomena. The Emergency Preparedness BSA program is planned to inspire the desire and foster the skills to meet this challenge in our youth and adult members so that they can participate effectively in this crucial service to their families, communities, and nation. The emergencies of today's world demand more than ever that our young people and adults be trained as individuals and as units to meet emergency situations. The importance of this training is not new to the Boy Scouts of America, as Scouting has always taught youth to be prepared for all types of emergencies. Since Scouting began in the United States, Scouts have responded to the needs of their communities and nation in time of crisis. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Media/Publications/EmergencyPreparedness.aspxControl
