Statewide Child Abuse Prevention Training for YSOs
Expanding on the concept of the regional, community-based outreach model currently being developed to meet with the YSO communities throughout the state, and eventually utilizing the information generated by them, the Task Force will develop and pilot a child/youth sexual abuse prevention training program specific to YSOs.
- The pilot trainings will be used to refine the presentation materials, format, length and content of the training. After revision, the Task Force will work with community leadership to administer the training onsite in a series of regional training sessions.
- The Task Force will also consult with organizations that have produced effective, easy to use, high quality, online abuse prevention training resources and work to develop an online version of the training program. The goal will be to build a multi-level program that will be appropriate for YSOs of various sizes.
- Upon signing in, a state-of-the-art platform can collect the demographic data needed for statistical analysis and reporting, and will allow learners to select the type of YSO they represent as well as their function (administration, manager, supervisor, employee, volunteer, parent, etc.).
- The training software can then “customize” the presentation with information relevant to the learner’s position, along with sample scenarios, state reporting requirements, links to relevant documents and eternal resources, a final exam and, upon completion, issue a certificate of training.
