Risk Assessment
Are children within your organization at risk of being sexually abused? A note on scoring--there is never a guarantee that any place is completely fail-safe, no matter the level of training and no matter the score. Child sexual predators are highly adaptive. Scoring is always subjective, so these are merely guidelines. A score of 0 is ideal. A score of 1-3 means that you are at moderate risk and that your organization is enticing for a child sexual predator. A score of 4-10 means that a very serious cultural change needs to take place within your organization. At this point, it is very easy for skilled sex offenders to find, groom, and produce victims, whether the abuse happens on or off church property.
