Any e-mail a youth sends to the Seneca District Committee, the District Executive, or any other adult Scout leader MUST be copied (CC:) to a parent/guardian OR to a registered adult leader in the youth's unit. The same holds true when an adult Scout leader sends an e-mail to a youth.
This policy is part of current BSA Youth Protection Guidelines. The wording of the policy is as follows:
"One-on-one contact between adult leaders and youth members is prohibited both inside and outside of Scouting.
- . . .
- "Private online communications (texting, phone calls, chat, IM, etc.) MUST include another registered leader OR parent[/guardian].
- "Communication by way of social media (Facebook, Snapchat, etc.) MUST include another registered leader OR parent[/guardian]."
Previous BSA Youth Protection Guidelines stated:
"Leaders [and youth members] should copy a parent[/guardian] AND another leader in digital and online communication..."
Seneca District believes copying a parent/guardian AND another leader is best and encourages adult leaders and youth members to continue to do so.
All BSA Youth Protection Guidelines can be found under "Youth Protection and Adult Leadership" on Scouting.org.
