- Protection: Part 2 (Reporting & Response)
- In this module we will address reporting and responding to child abuse. When we truly understand that we have a duty to report and respond to abuse, we will be able to protect the individuals we work with. (Approximate Time: 25 minutes)
- Prevention: Part 1
- In this module we will address how we can prevent abuse from happening in the first place and the supervision guidelines that will help you achieve a safe environment. These guidelines include supervision, staffing, ratios, registration, attendance and record keeping procedures. (Approximate Time: 20 minutes)
- Prevention: Part 2 (Plan Ahead and Plan for Safety)
- This module will provide an overview of additional supervision guidelines for overnight accommodations, high risk activities, transportation and what to do in case of an emergency. (Approximate Time: 25 minutes)
- Prevention: Part 3 (Best Practices)
- In this module we will address best practices for camps working with children and youth. These guidelines include health and safety, restrooms, shower rooms, and additional child protection protection procedures surrounding affection and behavior management. We will also address social issues such as bullying, cyber bullying, and photography and take a look at policies related to communication, such as communicating with minors, internet safety, and technology use. (Approximate Time: 20 minutes)
After each module you will be directed to the testing component of the training. This will include a short case study and quiz questions. You will need to complete the quiz with a score of 80% prior to moving onto the next module. Once you have successfully completed the course you will receive a certificate. A certificate will provide proof to your organization that you have successfully completed the course. This will also demonstrate that you understand the importance of vulnerable sector protection and abuse prevention.
