Teens under 18

Teens under 18 acting as religious educators or group leaders with children must work with at least one adult and be screened and educated on abuse prevention like other volunteers; teenagers who babysit for congregation events must always work in groups of two or more and must be on an approved list of babysitters (and supervised by adults).

Demonstrated by statement in policy.

Note for small congregations: The language related to adolescent volunteers and babysitters should be included in policies even if there are currently no children or youth in the congregation as membership may change.
