Protecting the children in our care is one of the most important and most difficult tasks that we have, but developing the necessary protocols can seem overwhelming. In this learning lab, you will learn from experienced leaders how to determine which policies your organization needs and where to start the process. At the end of the session, you will have manageable, prioritized tasks for developing child protection policies, implementing them, and responding to any claims that you may receive.
