An Open Letter to Our Families

You may have heard or seen a lot in the media lately about the BSA "ineligible volunteer" files. These files, which were maintained by the National office, have been maintained since the early days of our organization. The files list the names of people who are deemed unsuitable for membership in the Boy Scouts of America because of their inappropriate behavior; primarily sexual abuse. The files have never been secret. They have been reported on in newspapers, books, and other media, but were kept confidential because experts agree that confidentiality is a key component of effective reporting.
