The past several months has seen multiple reports of respected and trusted adults accused of inappropriate sexual contact with children and youth. Friends for Youth has also seen an increase in the numbers of inquiries about our resource, SAFE (Screening Applicants for Effectiveness): Guidelines to Prevent Child Molestation in Mentoring and Youth-Serving Organizations) that many program staff use in screening and assessing their volunteers. This webinar takes a closer look at Red Flags during the application and monitoring process – and how to use recommended tools to your advantage to uncover more information. This presentation will cover qualities and characteristics of perpetrators of child sexual abuse that we’ve learned from research on convicted child molesters and from our own 30+ year history of providing safe and effective mentors to vulnerable youth.

Program Director Sarah Kremer is joined by Executive Director Becky Cooper, who co-authored our resource and first began looking into how to assess volunteers even before background checks were available.
