This is a very important question that each organisation should consider when planning to involve youth volunteers in various project activities. It is understandable that the organisations may be nervous about added responsibility or the possibility of an unexpected incident. This could have negative consequences for the entire organisation, the community and the volunteer and his/her family. Be aware of the relevant legislation but most importantly, ensure that there is adequate indemnity/ public liability insurance in place that will protect the organization in such an event.
