Helping create safer communities for kids
The Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s newest program focuses on helping organizations take a proactive approach to protecting children in their care. Commit to Kids provides strategies, policies and a step-by-step plan for reducing the risk of child exploitation and abuse in organizations while, at the same time, protecting volunteers. The program helps organizations create safer environments by going beyond the criminal record check process and taking additional steps to ensure the safety of children in their care.
