New Rotary Youth Protection Policy/Officer

Rotary strives to create and maintain a safe environment for youth who participate in Rotary activities. To that end, each club has been asked to identify a Youth Protection Officer. For our club, that person will be Pat Tonn.

 

Rotary D5050 Youth Protection Policy applies to District activities that involves minors. This includes the Youth Exchange Program, Youth Engaged in Service, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Youth Adventures in Leadership Programs. The policy is to safeguard young people on Rotary programs and protect them from physical, sexual and emotional abuse and educate hosts about youth protection. The measures to minimize risk will include volunteer screening such as completing a police record check, personal interview, reference check and home visits for long term hosts or youth trainers. Persons having contact but not responsible for the youth, for example incidental transportation, invite for dinner or in a group setting are not required to be screened.

 

It is understood that no activity can be totally free of risk and the objective of the policy is to minimize risk for all parties. For more detailed information, please contact Pat Tonn at pattonn@telus.net.

 

If you wish to review the policy. it is available on our website under the member section in view club documents.
