As an organization concerned with the safety of young people, why do you have young people involved in a door-to-door campaign?
Any of the persons involved with our door-to-door campaigns are of legal age to do so. They are all always supervised and accompanied by an adult who may have 5 workers on a block, who then assigns each worker to a house. So, they are monitored and their whereabouts is always known by the supervisor. We would never, nor would we ever condone young persons going door-to-door on their own without a responsible adult supervising and knowing their whereabouts at all times. We have also received complaints about workers being out in cold weather, the employees are given a choice and do not have to work at all if the weather is -10. If they choose to work, that is completely up to them and they are allowed to warm up in the supervisors van as much and as long as they like. Please keep in mind that these are all individuals who want to work and are making an honest living as well as gaining experience. We have also found it difficult in the past to find adults who want to do this sort of work. Many people feel more comfortable opening the door to an unknown youth rather than an unknown adult.
