Adult Leader Agreement
Adult Leaders are required to participate in the Diocese of California safe church training once every 3 years. Online training is available at www.shieldthevulnerable.com.
At Diocesan youth events we ask youth to provide their preferred name and gender pronoun, and offer three sleeping spaces: female, male and gender neutral. In the Cathedral this means identified groups sleep in designated spaces in the nave or chancel, with Adult Leaders near each group.
In the past we have had Adult Leaders rotate turns being awake throughout the night to maintain safety in the building.
Adult Leaders are asked to remain onsite for the duration of the event, and be accessible should their youth need support, or assistance in abiding by our Community Agreement. Ideally Adult Leaders will participate in the program with their youth.
No alcohol, drugs or sexual behavior or any kind is permitted at Diocesan youth events.
