A leader's role is to facilitate religious growth and exploration in the children while sharing their journey as seekers.
A team of two or more adults should lead Wonderful Welcome. The
Unitarian Universalist Association's Safe Congregations Handbook
notes that programs with two leaders present at all times helps assure child safety. If co-leaders cannot be present at every session, enlist parent volunteers to join with the leader to ensure that two adults are present. Ideally, co-leaders will be individuals who consider the congregation their own faith home. Several sessions call for the group to participate in the life of the congregation, for example, through worship or outreach programs. At least one leader should be a congregational member familiar with the committees, policies, culture and rituals of the congregation.
