Free program for students focuses on creating safe environments for kids

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection has created a program aimed at making environments safe for kids and protecting them from sexual abuse.

From now until the end of March, the Commit to Kids program is free for University of Manitoba students, particularly those who work with children and youth, either as part of their university program, their volunteering or their paid employment.

“(Commit to Kids) provides policies, strategies, and a step-by-step plan for reducing the risk of child sexual abuse, encouraging organizations to take an active, participatory role in protecting children in their care,” says the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.
