Abuse Procedures when dealing with Children

By Alexa Connelly
August 07, 2012

All nonprofits that work with children and teens need to adopt policies to limit the risk for abuse. One on one contact with children should be limited. Abuse is less likely to occur if the adult and child are visible to others. The parent or guardian should accompany the child to the restroom since this is the most likely place for abuse. If there are overnight activities, the adults should have separate sleeping quarters from the children. At least two adults should accompany children overnight, but remember to have the same sex adults working with the children. Encourage staff, volunteers, and employees to report all suspicious behavior.
