KING'S GRANT PC (at 10 AM, prior to the Stated Meeting of PEVA) on TUES., OCT. 25. Do you know what are the three "safe places" you can touch on a child and which areas are considered unsafe? Did you know a child can be sexually abused even if touch is not involved? Your staff and volunteers who work with children need to know, and your insurance comany, likely, requires that they know! This workshop will cover several esential areas related to child protection including: * what constitutes abuse and steps to prevent it in your church program, * how to respond if an accusation of abuse occurs, * how to report suspected abuse, * what needs to be covered in a Child Protection Policy, * what constitutes a background check, and several options for obtaining a check in Virginia. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by NOON on MON., OCT. 24 so adequate materials may be prepared.
