BSA, Barbara Sinatra Children's Center new safety videos for youth 14-17

Recommended Posts

IRVING, Texas, July 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has launched a new series of personal safety awareness videos in partnership with the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center as part of ongoing efforts to help keep young people safe. The four new videos were developed and scripted by child advocates, psychologists, and national scholars, and are aimed at youth ages 14-17. The series will also be available to adults who are actively seeking out educational opportunities to learn how to better respond to and identify unsafe situations on behalf of minors.

The age-appropriate guidance is intended to help young people know how to safely seek help in a variety of situations — including when facing abuse by a family member, trusted adult, or another youth. These topics are critically relevant given that more than a third of all sexual offenses against youth reported to police are committed by another youth, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Excellent. This is such an important topic to cover with youth. We've used the scouting YPT with our oldest since he was a Lion scout, and it's made him all the wiser.
