Young Life has developed missionwide policies and procedures to ensure that kids are protected when they are with Young Life staff and / or leaders as well as kids who are part of Young Life sponsored activities.
Young Life's Standard Practices
All Young Life staff and volunteer leaders go through a careful screening process that consists of an application, interview(s) and character references. Criminal background checks are completed on all staff and volunteers. As part of the screening process, all staff and volunteer leaders must read, believe in and agree to support Young Life's Faith and Conduct policies. The policies include Young Life's:
Creating an Atmosphere of Acceptance
At a time when bullying between middle school, high school and college students is a growing concern among parents and educators, Young Life seeks to have a positive impact in the communities of which we are a part. Young Life leaders model acceptance and love for all kids and encourage students involved in our programs to do the same.
Keeping Kids Safe at Camp
Young Life camping is a significant part of the mission of Young Life. Young Life's priority for kids at camp is to keep them safe. View the standard practices Young Life employs to take care of kids at camp.
