How does your organization ensure the safety of youth participants? Screening potential volunteers continues to be one of the most over-looked yet crucial steps for any program that places children and youth with adult volunteers. In preparation for Child Abuse Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaigns, both in April, please join us as contributing author to the Handbook of Youth Mentoring (and Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series planning team member) Sarah Kremer reviews research and organizational implications from her chapter, Mentor Screening and Youth Protection.

Wondering how to incorporate recommendations from the chapter? Not sure how to determine which screening standards are most appropriate for your program? Bring your questions and learn how volunteer screening permeates all aspects of quality youth mentoring services from documentation and data storage, to staff training and supervision, to ongoing monitoring and community collaboration. Attendees will walk away with a greater understanding of the Recommended Tools and Processes outlined in the chapter, as well as a greater awareness of the importance of high-quality screening and monitoring for their mentoring programs.
