Did you know that two-thirds of adults who volunteer began volunteering when they were young? It is popular today for schools and court systems to require graduates and juvenile offenders to engage in community service. As a result, your nonprofit may be asked to accept youth volunteers who may not otherwise be part of your program. What is your obligation to accept those volunteers? And, if you incorporate youth volunteers in your programs anyway, what special protections should your nonprofit have in place both to encourage and protect youth volunteers, as well as to protect your nonprofit?
Watch this Webinar to:
- The dos and don’ts of selection and screening procedures for youth volunteers.
- Special orientation considerations for programs that involve youth volunteers.
- Insurance protections useful to address typical exposures involving youth volunteers.
