December 26-28, 2014.
Important Information About Protection of Minors
"Children, Junior youth, and youth are the most precious treasure a community can
possess, for in them are the promise and guarantee of the future." (Letter
from the Universal House of Justice to the Bahá'ís of the World, Ridván 2000)
"Children, junior youth and youth under 18, should not be left unsupervised at Bahá’í
events. It should be borne in mind that the purpose of supervision is not only to
prevent abuse, maltreatment or injury. Well-organized, high-quality supervision
for children, junior youth and youth at Bahá’í events will facilitate a positive
experience for them and aid the Bahá’í community in its aspiration to create for
its young people environments that are emotionally safe and accepting, respectful,
nurturing, courteous, fair, full of love, spiritually inspiring, and conducive to
bringing out their best." (Guidelines from National Spiritual Assembly,
To ensure the well-being, protection, and safety of all participants under the age
of 18 during the sessions, meal time, free time, and evenings, all attendees under
18 must be registered and be accompanied by an adult who is also present at the
conference at all times.
