Developing Your Institution's Child Safety and Molestation Prevention Program

Many administrators are not aware of how many programs or operations they have in their institution that are youth-centered. If your institution does any of the following, and you don’t have a Youth Protection Policy and Procedures, you should be attending this workshop!
  • Matriculated students who are under age of 18
  • Children brought to campus by their parents (either students or faculty), sibling, or caretaker
  • Pre-college activities, e.g., Upward Bound
  • High school students, e.g., co-enrolled or concurrent high school students; ECE programs
  • Employees who are minors (e.g., summer help)
  • Career shadowing or internships, e.g., Career Pathways
  • Admissions programs and department recruiting efforts on and off campus
  • Programs for children and youth: camps, day care, specific programming, short term programming
  • Local schools use facilities: field trips, library use, museums, residence and dining halls, athletic fields and sports center, other campus facilities
  • Athletics: Sports team recruits; candidates for admissions; siblings of students, gym passes

This 6-hour workshop is intended to lead participants through:

  1. Key elements of a child safety and molestation prevention program (policy, procedures and infrastructure)
  2. Getting Started: Organizing your team to develop a program
  3. Identifying and overcoming institutional barriers
  4. Implementation
  5. Audit, follow-up and management

Takeaways: Participants should leave feeling confident that they can lead their organization through the development process and create a sustainable child safety program. The program will be a combination of lecture and group activities.
