Child and Youth Protection Policy Training Resources

Thank you to the churches who have already participated in one of the Child and Youth Protection Policy training opportunities in the AC District. Below are the handouts and the PowerPoint slides for training purposes. 

One correction: The Ministry Protection insurance rates are 28%. I had it incorrect on the handout from previous trainings. The information below is correct. 

One update for the CYPP template is that the Solo Driver age has changed to 21. It is correct on the slides but not on the policy template. 

Please contact the AC District office if you need clarification about the policy, or have questions or concerns.
