Creating a Culture of Safety:
Building Skills to Prevent & Respond to Sexual Misconduct in Schools & Youth Organizations
About the Conference:
Building on last fall's highly successful conference, this event will feature a day of skill-building sessions to increase the confidence of school and youth organization leaders to prevent and respond to a range of boundary-violating behaviors on the continuum of employee misconduct.
Learn how you can:
- Identify strengths and gaps in your current safe-child policies
- Train your employees using a new, effective online training on sexual abuse prevention and provide resources to educate parents
- Develop a detailed code of conduct that sets clear behavioral boundaries
- Better screen prospective employees to discourage those with concerning behaviors
- Engage youth in assessing/modifying the safety of phyical spaces
- Confidently respond to staff who have been reported to you for boundary violations
- Appropriately respond to students/clients when they disclose sexual abuse or misconduct
Who Should Attend:
New England area state education leaders, public school superintendents and principals, heads of private independent schools, leaders of youth-serving organizations, directors of schools of education, and other strategic decision makers would all benefit from attending this conference.
