2023 Be a SuperHero: Plan to Protect® Orientation Training for Youth Who Work with Children
Abuse Awareness: In this module we will address the importance of safety and protection when working with children. We do discuss what is abuse and how prevalent it is.
Protection: In this module we will address how we can protect those who are vulnerable by discussing the types of abuse. In this module we will address reporting and responding to child abuse. We train young people that there is legislation on reporting abuse and the importance of notifying their supervisor whenever there is a disclosure, allegation or suspicion of abuse in order that we will be able to protect the individuals we work with.
Prevention: In this module we will address how we can protect children and prevent abuse from happening in the first place that will help you achieve a safe environment. These guidelines include supervision, staffing, ratios, registration, attendance and record keeping procedures. 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. In this module we will address best practices for working with children. These guidelines include health and safety, restrooms, shower rooms, and additional child 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.
This training includes short video clips of young people interacting with the topic of protection.
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.
