Cyber ChipToday'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.

Netsmartz® has created a Scouting portal showcasing Cyber Chip resources, including grade-specific videos, for each level (Grades 1 through 12). Check out the CYBER CHIP PROGRAM here. The Cyber Chip can be earned by any youth in the BSA’s programs. Material is tailored at each level for age-appropriateness. (Cub Scouts—Grades 1–3 and 4–5, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and Sea Scouts—Grades 6–8 and 9–12.) Topics include cyberbullying, cell phone use, texting, blogging, gaming, and identity theft. Cyber Chip Resources.
