Risk Management for Programs Serving Children: Preventing Sexual Misconduct

October 11, 2016 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

$60 – $100

Join us for this new legal training on the important and sensitive issue of keeping children safe while in the care of programs intended to serve them. Preventing sexual misconduct in programs that are intended to serve children and keep them safe requires intentional practices of having the right policies in place and following those policies. These policies can include who and how you hire employees and volunteers, how you train your employees and volunteers, complying with mandatory reporting laws, and how you communicate with families.

This training will cover the risks involved when serving children, prevention of sexual misconduct, insurance coverage, releases, and legal compliance requirements. We will answer the following questions:

  1. How do we keep our organization safe for children and families?
  2. How do we protect our organization from liability in our work with children?
  3. What are the elements of a good internal policy for our employees and volunteers who work with children?
  4. When are background checks required and who should be checked?

This training is intended for organizations that serve children and families, including:
Youth Sports Programs
Out of School Time Programs
Summer Camps

This training is also intended for lawyers who advise organizations that serve children and will offer 2 CLE credit, pending approval.
