Update on BSA National
Chapter 11 & Victims of
Past Abuse

As the Boy Scouts of America national organization reaches a significant moment in its bankruptcy case, the Old North State Council wants our local Scouting community to know we share in the BSA’s heartfelt support for victims of past abuse in Scouting. 

Now that all claims have been filed, the next step will be for third-party advisors to review the claims in order to uphold the integrity of the process, while the BSA national organization works to develop a plan of reorganization to fund the proposed victim's trust fund.

Youth Protection and Training

All registered leaders must complete Youth Protection Training, submit to a mandatory criminal background check, follow policies on two-deep leadership and no one-on-one contact, and are required to report any signs of abuse as a mandatory reporter.  Also, Scouts and parents receive educational materials on youth protection in the first section of the Scout Handbook. Our latest Youth Protection guidelines are available at https://www.scouting.org/training/youth-protection/

If you have been a victim of abuse or have any information about suspected abuse, please reach out to our 24/7 Scouts First Hotline at 1-844-Scouts1 for immediate assistance.
