In the previous post, I offered some suggestions for crafting a congregational new media policy. Another related and frequently-asked question is about new media policies specifically for youth groups. At this time, the UUA does not have an official sample policy for youth groups.
What I usually recommend to youth advisors is that they join the UUA’s “advisor-l” e-mail list for youth advisors, browse the archives to read past conversations about communicating online, and — if the answer to their question isn’t available in the archives — post a new question to the list.
If your congregation has an online communication policy for religious educators that you think would be helpful to other congregations — or you would like to suggest some guidelines that have worked well in your experience as a lay leader or professional religious educator — please comment!
