Important information regarding California AB-506: Mandatory Training and Background Checks
AB-506 is a state of California law adopting additional youth safety requirements, and it took effect January 1, 2022. The law applies to ALL youth service organizations throughout the State. It is also separate from and in addition to BSA Youth Protection Training, thus furthering council's support of their mission to protect youth in our program.
AB506 requires that administrators, employees, and "regular volunteers" are required to complete child abuse and neglect reporting training (aka mandated reporter training) to undergo LiveScan fingerprinting and a background check. A "regular volunteer" is defined as anyone 18 years of age or older and who has direct contact with, or supervision of children for more than 16 hours a month or 32 hours per year.
Registered adults in the BSA who do not meet the definition of a "regular volunteer" must complete the "Declaration of Exception".
