A Great Resource for Youth Serving Organizations

If you work with youth of any age, you need to have policies and procedures to help prevent (a) abuse and molestation and (b) the temptation for someone to falsely accuse your organization or one of your employees or volunteers of abuse or molestation.

I sincerely hope such a thing never happens under your watch, and that your after school program, group residential facility, foster placement program, or school never experiences an event like that.

Here’s a link to a resource put out by the CDC. It’s free, and it might help you get started on a risk management program for your nonprofit. If you’re new, definitely check it out.

Most insurance companies who provide coverage for nonprofits also have free or deeply discounted resources.
