During the COVID-19 pandemic our congregational, regional and national youth programs are being quickly shifted to on-line spaces. This is important and life-giving. And we still want to make sure our youth are safe.Here are the guidelines we are using for UUA sponsored youth events, which are also helpful for congregations planning on line youth programming to adapt for their use.
All UUA adult volunteer and staff interaction with youth online must adhere to our current Social Media and Electronic Communication policy, our Photo Permission and Social Media policy still applies, adults must adhere to the Adult Code of Conduct, and youth and adult leaders must adhere to Adult and Youth Leaders Code of Ethics
Here is the current guidance from UUA staff.
