Today’s youth are spending more time than ever using digital media and devices for education, research, socializing, fun and even Scouting. While the benefits are unquestionable, they may also encounter issues their parents never had to confront before such as cyberbullying, digital reputation, online predators, trolls and inappropriate content. To help Scout Leaders, families and volunteers keep our Scouts safe while online, the Greater Niagara Frontier Council and AT&T have launched Cyber Chip 2.0, an enhanced version of the Boy Scouts of America’s Cyber Chip program that incorporates AT&T’s Digital You public cyber safety and awareness campaign’s resources to guarantee all Scouts are Prepared, even while online!

Cyber Chip 2.0 should be used as a tool to show skill and a commitment to do what’s right in the cyber world and protect them from the potential dangers. Unit leaders are strongly encouraged to have their Scouts earn a Cyber Chip 2.0 before allowing any electronic use on outings.  BSA Cyber Chip is the first requirement for Scouts earning the Digital Technology and Programming merit badges.

Cyber Chip 2.0’s multimedia and educational resources are powered by AT&T for volunteers, staff, and parents to access to teach and train Scouts and other members about avoiding cyber challenges and what to do should they encounter an issue. All resources are categorized by age appropriateness and all leaders are encouraged to dedicated time each year to review the materials and have your Scouts take the pledge.

The Cyber Chip 2.0 can be earned by any youth in the BSA’s programs:

  • Cub Scouts: Grades 1–3 and 4–5
  • Boy Scouts: Grades 6–8 and 9–12
  • Varsity Scouts, Venturing, Explores and Sea Scouts: Grade 9–12
