Protecting Youth in the #MeToo Era

In this one-hour event, attorney Richard R. Hammar—author of the Reducing the Risk child abuse prevention program for churches—joins editor Matthew Branaugh to discuss the screening, selection, and supervision measures churches must implement to maintain safe and effective youth ministries.

As public awareness of child and youth sexual abuse continues to expand, particularly through the highly visible #MeToo and #ChurchToo movements, church leaders must remain vigilant in their efforts to reduce and eliminate vulnerabilities that can bring harm to children and youth.

The presentation includes processes to use when screening and selecting staff and volunteers who work with youth, as well as supervision measures, including policies and guidelines for transportation, overnight events, and social media and mobile device interactions, as well as counseling.
