This training focuses on the recommended tools and approaches from our resource SAFE (Screening Applicants for Effectiveness): Guidelines to Prevent Child Molestation in Mentoring and Youth-Serving Organizations that many programs already use in screening and assessing their volunteers. Adaptable to both those new to the field and those who are experienced in the field, this workshop addresses what is recommended and why, as well as how to use both subjective and objective components to make the best decision. Additionally, research gathered in the writing of the Mentor Screening and Youth Protection chapter for the 2nd edition of the Handbook of Youth Mentoring will be reviewed. This training is designed for Program Staff, Program Directors, Executive Directors, and Board Members.
