Certified SAFE Training consists of content that is designed to assist youth mentoring and youth serving programs in strengthening their assessment and monitoring practices to screen out potential child sexual abusers.
Screening volunteers is an intrusive yet necessary step in any kind of program that allows volunteers to have contact with youth. When recommended tools and processes are followed, youth-serving programs show their commitment to the safety of youth in their care, allowing them to have positive and effective mentoring relationships. Done poorly, however, programs leave themselves exposed to a host of risks, to the youth they serve as well as to the organization’s reputation and credibility.
In the absence of mandated standards, these recommendations are intended to be just that. No process is completely guaranteed to remove all risk of harm.
Key Learning Objectives

- To discuss the latest research on perpetrators, as well as potential red flags and warning signs to be aware of during your application and monitoring processes.
- To learn about and practice screening tools and guidelines that youth professionals can apply in order to maximize the safety of the children and youth served.
