Avondale's Children, Youth, Staff
and Volunteer Protection Policy

We have a Children, Youth, Staff and Volunteer Protection Policy (CYPP) that we share with Church employees and volunteers who serve our children and youth. It is also available to parents of children and youth involved in Church events and activities, and members of the Congregation. This policy is intended to protect children and youth from inappropriate treatment while participating in Church activities. It also protects volunteers and staff from false allegations of inappropriate treatment. Please take time to read our policies thoroughly. 

As part of our baptismal vows, we have promised to teach, strengthen and support our children and youth. At Avondale Presbyterian Church, we are committed to a safe, healthy environment for children and youth, as well as those who work with them.

Please RSVP to attend one of these classes.
