Genesee Valley Toolbox

Genesee Valley Toolbox includes resources to support sessions in the Presbytery of Genesee Valley as they develop, adopt, implement, and update their sexual misconduct/harassment policies and practices. It offers practical information, recommends best practices, and identifies reliable sources on a variety of topics. The intent is to deepen knowledge, encourage behaviors, and achieve important outcomes. Please distribute widely in your congregation.
