Welcome Westminster RE Teachers and Other Volunteers With Youth!
MANDATORY BACKGROUND CHECKS & CODE OF ETHICS AGREEMENT
If you are volunteering to work with Westminster children and youth in any capacity (including mentors, drivers, teachers, etc.) and have NOT filled out a Westminster Unitarian background check consent form in the past two years (or are unsure when you last filled one out), please:
- Print out the form (linked below).
- Fill it out.
- Give the completed form to Jeannette Bessinger, Director of Spiritual Direction (on a Tuesday or a Sunday) or Marisa at the front desk asap.
We keep these forms in a locked drawer and shred them after the successful completion of the check.

RE TEACHER’S MANUAL AND SUPPORT MATERIALS
Please find a link to the teacher manual below. You may read it online or print it out for reference or to take with you to a teacher training.
This manual provides a lot of helpful and important information – it will answer many of the questions you might have, especially as a new teacher. Please take a little time to read it through. If you still have questions, feel free to reach out to Jeannette Bessinger, Director of Spiritual Development at firstname.lastname@example.org
