In October of 2009, the Yearly Meeting approved adoption of a Youth Safety Policy which has been recommended for review by local Meeting Religious Education Committees for consideration in the operation of their programs.
The RE Committee also has available a single email address that may be used to contact them. Simply send to RECommittee@bym-rsf.org and it will be forwarded to the entire current committee.
The Committee has developed a draft curriculum for Friends to consider. The current version is dated March 21, 2019 and can be downloaded here.
