Gearing Up for Child Advocacy & Prevention

Description:

Join this webinar to learn more about an easy to use new tool: “Youth Activity Guide for Advocates & Preventionists” which provides practical activities and lessons to use with kids ages 5-12. This webinar will give fresh ideas to incorporate into your advocacy services or prevention projects with children.
We will expand on how to use the Activity Guide to increase capacity for child advocacy and to compliment adult-focused CSA prevention work. We will discuss the core values of child advocacy, best practices for prevention, benefit to these skill building assets, and even walk through some activities.
We recommend reviewing the Youth Activity Guide before the webinar and bringing questions! There will be time to hear about any materials you’re using in child advocacy and prevention in your community as well.
