Risk Management:

  1. Mandatory Adult Background Screening/Reports for all adults included in your delegation. In February of 2019 we will begin to run Background checks for all adults registered as adult advisors.  The National Registrar will send all delegation registrars the simple instructions and links for adult advisors to use to complete the background screening.  This screening will be conducted by the PYT Office through the abuse prevention agency, Praesidium, Inc. The cost for background checks is included with the adult registration fee.
  2. All adults will undergo a required online/digital Protection Policy Training and Review (it’s a video you watch with some knowledge measurements throughout).  This is new.  A part of the newly approved and mandatory Presbyterian Church (USA) Child/Youth/Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy approved at GA.  ALL adults at any event with minors must complete this training.
