In order to create and sustain loving, inclusive communities, we must nurture the spiritual lives of the children and youth in our Meetings. This requires work, energy, and deep dedication from many adults — volunteer and sometimes paid. It also requires a safe environment. In order to grow in God’s Light — physically, spiritually, and emotionally — our children and youth must FEEL safe and BE safe.
Please join for conversation about creating safe Meeting communities. We will consider what a safe community looks like, discuss best practices for designing a safety policy for a Monthly Meeting, and share thoughts and ideas.
The program will be led by Kristin Simmons, PYM Youth Engagement Coordinator. Kristin’s work includes holding care for child and community safety. Friends attending will add their experience, wisdom, and perspectives on the topic.
