I just went through the new MBC training online. I am quite confused as there is a conflict with Youth Protection and Barriers to Abuse https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/yp-faqs/#as
Under the What is a Merit Badge Counselor training - sub topic How Merit Badge Counselor work with scouts, it says
“A Scout must have another Scout, a relative, or a friend with them at each meeting with a merit badge counselor.”
Is there a mistake here or there is a change in how Merit Badge Work?
From Youth Protection and Barriers to Abuse FAQs
Q: The Barriers to Abuse say that there must be two registered adults present for all Scouting activities and meetings. Does that include merit badge counseling? Fund-raising events?
A. Yes. However, the parent or legal guardian of the Scout may serve as the second adult. This parent or legal guardian does not have to be a registered leader.
Hope someone can clarify.
