Cyber Safety

BSA Cyber Chip Tool

"Today’s youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education,
research, socializing, and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online,
the Boy Scouts of America introduces the Cyber Chip. In developing this exciting new tool,
the BSA teamed up with content expert Netsmartz, part of the National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children and training expert for many law enforcement agencies."



The Cyber Chip can be earned by any youth in the BSA's programs:

  • Cub Scouts - Grades 1-3 and 4-5
  • Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers and Sea Scouts - Grades 6-8 and 9-12
