    Just heard about this free local training from Education Northwest and thought others might be interested. 

    When: Thu, April 12, 2018, 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM PDT

    Where: Education Northwest, 101 Southwest Main Street #500, Portland, OR 97204

    Description: With more than 80 million children having some kind of contact with nearly 35 million adults through volunteer and youth-serving programs each year — and with the increase in the number of articles and reports about trusted adults who are revealed to be predators — we offer an in-depth research-based training to help organizations effectively screen their volunteers to prevent child molestation.

    The Screening Applicants for Effectiveness (SAFE) curriculum was developed by the Friends for Youth mentoring program in California. The SAFE workshop provides staff with tools to immediately improve volunteer screening. Participants learn:

    • The purpose and relevance of screening volunteers

    • Information on perpetrators, victims, and dynamics of abuse

    • A holistic approach of informed intuition and red flags and recommended tools and processes
