Boy Scouts hosting closed forum on preventing sex abuse

Posted: Updated:

The Boy Scouts of America is hosting an unprecedented closed-door symposium with other national youth organizations on Thursday. They hope to share strategies to combat sex abuse in the future.

The group will hear presentations from some of the nation's top experts on child-abuse prevention. They will also discuss how uncorroborated information about potentially threatening adult volunteers might be shared among youth groups.

This comes just weeks after the Boys Scouts so-called "perversion files" were released, but this gathering reportedly has been a year in the making.
