Pennsylvania Required Clearances

State of Pennsylvania Required Background Checks

The state of Pennsylvania requires that all Volunteers that are involved with children must take the following background checks to be qualified to be a leader in the Boy Scouts of America:

  1. Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Background checks
  2. Pennsylvania Child Abuse Background checks
  3. FBI Background Checks or Volunteer Affidavit (Living in Pennsylvania 10 Years or more)

Volunteers that do not comply with this ordinance will not be registered in the Boy Scouts of America. Charters will not be processed if the background check paperwork is not turned into the office.

We are committed to keeping our Scouts safe and appreciate your cooperation with these extra steps to ensure we continue to do so!
