The UU Church of Concord has a policy to create the safest possible environment for our children while they are involved in church programs. We require that all volunteers who work regularly with children have been involved at the congregation for at least 6 months, have a background check, and provide references. We require that there are always at least two caregivers present when children are being supervised for a church activity, one of whom must be at least 18 years old.
We want every child who comes through our doors to have an experience of feeling cared for, valued, and safe, and we take seriously our responsibility as adults to adhere to these policies.
We also have a policy regarding people who have been accused or convicted of sexual offenses. We require anyone who meets the criteria of the policy to contact Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger.
