Parent and Leader Guidance on the Use of Virtual Meeting Technology and Safe Scouting

Scouting is all about safety.  Virtual meeting technology is allowing Suffolk County units to continue the delivery of Suffolk County Council's Scouting program. Parents and leaders need to be aware that both Youth Protection Training and proper etiquette apply when participating in a virtual meeting, including meetings such as advancement discussions for merit badges and Eagle candidate meetings. 

Two deep leadership always applies whether in person or electronic communications.  A parent, guardian or designated adult must always be present (in the room) to monitor the youth's participation throughout all Scouting virtual meeting.  Proper etiquette should also be monitored down to proper attire such as Scout uniform or activity shirt in a video conference. 

Invites and pass codes to meetings must not be shared with individuals who are not an invitee.  If at any time it is suspected that a stranger not invited has joined a meeting, the meeting should be immediately terminated.  There are news reports of malicious individuals crashing Zoom meetings posting hate speech or offensive material.  Leaders should use judgement. We want to protect our youth.
