"For a child to achieve educational success, they must be exposed to more than just test preparation. Enriching experiences makes learning real"

-Renee Goodwin, Director

In 1996, the General Conference of The United Methodist Church passed a resolution requiring all conferences to adopt policies to safeguard children and youth. Through the program, churches train and certify persons as safe workers with children and youth in United Methodist ministries.

Safe Sanctuaries policies include such things as screening and checking references for paid employees and volunteers; preventing abuse, recognizing signs of abuse and reporting incidents of abuse; making sure insurance coverage is adequate; and developing building usage policies.
