Canada’s acclaimed Violence Prevention and Youth Empowerment Organization is holding their 2nd annual Professional Development Training in Vancouver.
Training dates are January 27, 28 & 29 in Vancouver
This, 3-day Intensive Professional Development Training demonstrates the highly effective school-based SafeTeen program. Although there is youth focus in our programing this is a skill based program for adults to learn concrete skills to prevent violence. In this hands-on, skills based training, participants will learn concrete skills they can pass on to children, teens and other adults especially those who are more vulnerable.
This training is open to counselors, educators, youth workers, police officers and anyone who wishes to empower the adults, children and youth they work with, live with and care about.
“A long-standing leadership priority of the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation is to promote safe schools and violence prevention initiatives for youth. To further this aim, the Federation joined in partnership with the highly acclaimed SAFETEEN program in January 2001. As stated in a recent proposal, a large urban school district stated “This program is one of the most well received and ‘life-changing’ for students who are fortunate enough to attend.”
SafeTeen Mission Statement:
To transform the youth culture of emotional survival and fear,
into a culture of empowerment and safety in all schools and communities across the globe.
