It is important to remember that this is a VOLUNTEER organization.  None of us are paid for the jobs we do in Scouting, and, In fact, we all have jobs and families just like you do, which limit the time we have available for Scouts.  So, it is critical that ALL parents volunteer to the extent that they can.  We have volunteer positions that require very little work, and others that are a major committment.  We have work you can volunteer for that just involves making phone calls or running errands during the day.  The point is:  there is something for EVERYONE to do and everyone is needed for something!
All BSA Registered Volunteers are required to complete Youth Protection Training every two years.  If you chose to become registered with BSA please take this course online at the link provided under leader training.
