CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION POLICY
The purpose of this policy is to equip employees and volunteers with the knowledge to provide a safe and secure environment for children who participate in Teach One to Lead One programs and activities.
The goal is to protect children from sexual abuse, child molestation or any type of inappropriate sexual behavior by its employees or volunteers. Additionally, these policies aim to protect employees and volunteers from false accusations of sexual abuse.
DEFINITION OF A MINOR CHILD
For our purposes, a minor is any individual under the age of 19.
DEFINITION OF CHILD ABUSE
Child abuse is any act, or failure to act, by a person that places a child at imminent risk of serious harm.
1. REPORTING PROCEDURES
If you suspect or observe inappropriate sexual behavior, you must file two separate reports. The first is to the immediate authority over the facility you’re serving: for example, the principal of the school. The second report must be filed to the COO of Teach One to Lead One. Both reports must be filled out and turned in within 24 hours of the incident.
Reporting abuse can precipitate severe consequences to a family, so it should never be done casually or thoughtlessly, and certainly not for malicious purposes. At the same time, failing to report can have severe consequences to a child at risk. Failure to report suspected child abuse can result in criminal and/or civil liability.
You are granted immunity from prosecution and civil liability under federal law for reporting suspected abuse or neglect in “good faith.”
2. TWO-ADULT PROTECTION POLICY
Under this policy, reasonable effort must be made to have two (2) adults present, or nearby, with minors during T1L1 sponsored activities or when meeting during non-business hours. For purposes of this policy, a husband and wife who work in the same facility are considered to be only one adult and would need an additional adult present with them at all times.
Failure to Comply
Failure to comply with either of these policies will result in appropriate corrective action.
