I am sure that you have seen some recent social & news media coverage regarding the Boy Scouts of America.  As a leader in our Scouting organization, I think that you will agree that the Boy Scouts of America is one of the safest youth-serving organizations in the country.   The headlines you may have seen are mostly about decades-old allegations of abuse that have resurfaced due to recent legislative changes in other states.  The coverage is also about our Volunteer Screening Database which was created to keep Scouts safe.   The attached document has been developed for you to know the facts.  Please feel free to share with others.  Questions regarding this matter may be addressed to the Council’s Scout Executive Jack L. Sears, Jr. @ jack.sears@scouting.org.  Thanks for all that you do for the youth in our community through Scouting.  You are appreciated and admired!
