A one-of-a-kind guide for youth-serving organizations to help build out their own child protection policies in just 120 days.

Expert guidance, worksheets, and checklists take the guesswork out of confusing industry standards—so you can focus on helping kids learn, grow, and flourish.

Written by two experts with more than 60 years of experience helping youth-serving organizations (YSOs), the book's goal is to provide a blueprint for other organizations to develop their own policies thereby helping the organizations to fulfill their missions while protecting the children in their care.

From private schools to church youth groups to mentoring organizations to summer camps, YSOs provide unparalleled opportunities for children to learn, grow, and flourish.  Unfortunately, because they serve a vulnerable population, those groups also face unparalleled risks.

Within the book, organizations will be able to:

  • Recognize and avoid common pitfalls and mistakes
  • Set up a workable timeline for implementation
  • Create and confirm their own commitments and principles
  • Access several supportive worksheets, checklists, and activity guides
  • Learn how to pick the right people (leaders, team, volunteers, etc.)
  • Understand and adhere important protocols and guidelines
  • Appropriately respond to serious incidents

This not only enables YSOs to develop a robust, sustainable child protection plan, but also holds everyone accountable and protects both the programs and the minors they serve.
