Scouting in Connecticut

Safety Moment

As Scouting moves to virtual and online platforms, we offer the following reminders to help keep kids safe. The guidance below applies to all online Scouting activities and meetings.

  • Follow all youth protection policies.
  • Use business-oriented conference platforms that include good safety and privacy features instead of platforms with other primary purposes (such as gaming).
  • Regularly review and implement the latest security features of your chosen platform to avoid unauthorized visitors or other security issues in your meetings.
  • Do not record online activities/meetings that include youth participants
