In 2016, Episcopal Charities began requiring grantees to provide copies of their policies and procedures regarding the prevention of sexual misconduct and abuse. Many who have attended in-person Safe Church workshops offered by the Episcopal Diocese of New York or completed Safeguarding Online have expressed a desire for more training, specifically on how to create policies and procedures for their outreach programs. This workshop, led by Episcopal Charities staff, will give you the tools to do just that. Participants will:
– Become familiar with the guidelines of the Episcopal Diocese of New York
– Evaluate existing policies and procedures
– Learn about best practices in youth, feeding, and other types of programs
– Understand the steps involved in creating a set of policies and procedures specific to your program
