The Kanakuk Abuser Threat© Indicator identifies positions or roles within a youth serving organization that may pose a greater threat to minors based on their degree of access and control. The greater the access or control of a position or role, the higher the Threat Level Score (TLS).©
The TLS score is derived from a series of eight carefully designed questions that are synonymous with the methods of child abusers, and valued based on the factors below. Then, based on the TLS, the youth organization can focus resources on these higher threats as it relates to hiring, training and monitoring.
