If any of your responses or information provided on this form are untruthful or inaccurate, Youth for Christ may determine that you are no longer qualified to be associated with the ministry. *
Do you agree that, if you become a Ministry Leader through Youth for Christ, and become involved in criminal proceedings or other circumstances that would cause your answers to any of the questions above to change, you will immediately notify, and provide a complete description of the circumstances to Youth for Christ. *
Code of Conduct
As followers of Jesus, we have been called to the highest standards of sexual morality and conduct. This is particularly important for those in ministry. Young people place great trust in their youth leaders. That trust must never be violated by Staff or Ministry Leaders of Youth for Christ.
Please indicate you have read and agree to the Youth for Christ Code of Conduct and Abuse Reporting policies.
Youth for Christ is committed to the preventing abuse and thus requires Staff and Ministry Leaders to report child sexual abuse or suspicion of abuse to the proper authorities. You must tell the immediate supervisor of the incident as soon as possible. YFC has the obligation under law to report child sexual abuse to authorities.
As Christians, we must be prepared to respond to others regarding allegations of abuse. We must be prepared to respond to the victim and his or her family. It is imperative that the teen’s and alleged perpetrator’s names and circumstances remain confidential, and only those with the “need to know” are informed of the alleged incident.
Substance Abuse Policy *
Use, possession, transfer, sale dispensation, distribution or manufacturing of illegal drugs, drug inhalants, intoxicants or being under the influence to any degree is strictly prohibited.
At no time should a Ministry Leader use tobacco or alcohol where students are present. Please use Biblical wisdom and maturity in making choices on these matters. Ministry Leaders should use great discretion in regard to the use of tobacco and alcohol.
A Ministry Leader found in abuse of and / or dependence on these items will be immediately removed from contact with students. Youth for Christ reserves the right to implement other appropriate measures, including participation termination.
Safe Driving Code of Conduct
I agree to abide by the following.
Youth For Christ requires all drivers of students to have a minimum of $100,000/$300,000 insurance
The most common amount of coverage is a split limit of $100,000/$300,000 bodily injury with property damage coverage equal to $100,000. People that take out lower limits could be exposing themselves to financial disaster if they can't afford to pay the difference when an accident occurs.
For example, let’s say you have $15,000/$30,000 bodily injury coverage and $15,000 property damage coverage. You get into an accident that is your fault with two other vehicles; a five year Honda Accord and two year old Chrysler 300. There are three people in the Honda and one person in the Chrysler. All have minor injuries but are brought to the hospital, and the person driving the Chrysler stays overnight for observation. Their bills will run over your $30,000 maximum for Bodily injury and the person driving the Chrysler will have individual hospital costs of more than $15,000. What does that mean? Once your coverage is used up you will be responsible for the rest. With hospital costs as expensive as they are that could mean a very costly bill to you. This doesn't even take into account the amount of property damage that needs to be paid out. Since you hit two cars the damage for both comes out at $19,000. That is another $4,000 out of your pocket. The worst part of the whole thing was you thought you had full coverage and that it didn't matter what happened. Full coverage only means that you have liability coverage, comprehensive and collision coverage but your limits on liability are the most important. YFC requires all drivers of teens to have a minimum of $100,000/$300,000 insurance.
