Look for the Helpers: 10 Things Every Youth Serving Organization Needs to Know and Do in Keeping Children Safe

Course Description

Youth Serving Organizations can provide quality experiences for youth to grow and thrive under the care of staff and volunteers with the best interests of the youth. This workshop will provide an overview of Centers for Disease Control best practices for youth serving organizations in preventing or responding to cases of child abuse. Attendees will also learn about warning signs of abuse as well as the dynamics of abuse that often delay a child’s disclosure.
