Dec 05 - Child Abuse Prevention Policy Statement Revised

Children, Youth Comments Off on Child Abuse Prevention Policy Statement Revised
The PSWD Executive Board revised its “Child Abuse Prevention Policy Statement” on Friday, August 3, 2012 with a new section on gift giving. You can read the statement at: www.pswdcob.org/youth/youth-worker-forms  All of our district conference volunteers working with children and youth read and sign this statement and go through a background check.
.
Does your church have a similar policy in place? Many organizations (churches included) miss the obvious by not having an official policy and teaching parents, workers and volunteers.
.
In 2012, the district office mailed each PSWD congregation a free copy of the May/June issue of the Church Law & Tax Report containing the article “12 Lessons Church Leaders Can Learn from Penn State’s Abuse Scandal
.
Our church insurance company asks churches to do background checks on youth, Sunday School, and nursery workers. PSWD and the denominational office use National Background Investigation, Inc: www.nationalbackground.com Email the district office frontdesk@pswdcob.org for help signing up your church or camp for the reduced rate for each background check.
