Risk Management for Organizations Serving Children + Free Legal Clinic – Kent

April 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

South King County:

This training is part of our South King County Nonprofit Legal Training Series and is intended for residents of S. King County and organizations that serve S. King County residents. Registration is limited to S. King County participants. This training is also sponsored by the Seattle Foundation and City of Kent and is a partnership of Wayfind and the Nonprofit Assistance Center (NAC).

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 and minimizing liability for the organizations who serve children.   Preventing sexual and other 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 and other misconduct, including appropriate policies, social media use, insurance coverage, releases, and legal compliance requirements.  We will answer the following questions:

How do we keep our organization safe for children and families?
How do we protect our organization from liability in our work with children?
What do we do if the children in our programs are misuing social media?
What are the elements of a good internal policy for our employees and volunteers who work with children?
When are background checks required and who should be checked?
This training is intended for organizations that serve children and families, including:

·      Churches

·      Preschools

·      Schools

·      Youth Sports Programs

·      Out of School Time Programs

·      Summer Camps

Dinner is provided!
