#PowerInPrevention Ending Child Sexual Abuse: A Practical View of the Role that Youth Serving Organizations Can Play in Preventing Child Sexual Abuse - Register!

Tuesday, May 23 at 2pmET / 1pmCT / 11amPT

High profile cases such as Sandusky in the US, and Savile in the UK led to many adopting the "stockade approach" to safeguarding their organizations. But the organizations responsible for our children and youth recognize that their role is about keeping them safe AND helping them learn, explore and grow in new ways. As a result, organizations need to do so much more than create a simple screening process (e.g., with criminal records). This session is an opportunity to hear from two experts from the US and the UK who will provide an understanding of the adults and youth at risk to sexually abuse. They also will address the "why" and the "how" of comprehensive and effective plans, practices and organizational culture change for youth serving organizations to best protect and support children.
