Children’s Learning Program
All too often adults are trained about the dangers of child abuse but the kids are left out of the conversation. That’s why Compass has designed a three-part child abuse prevention program specifically for children, empowering them to help keep themselves safe:
Based on over a decade of experience, Compass understands the importance of children being taught this important subject in-person by a trained facilitator. The facilitator should be a trusted adult – such as a teacher, social worker, or faith-based leader. Children are never taught about this sensitive subject online by themselves because kids of all ages need to know that caring, responsible adults are available to answer questions and address concerns.
Using a unique methodology that leverages the best of adult learning principles and online instructional techniques, Compass provides online training for your organization’s facilitator.
The Children’s Learning Program is an age-appropriate curriculum for children from Pre-K through 12th grade. Each grade receives a customized child abuse learning program tailored to their age group, addressing challenges children face in the 21st century – including technology safety, bullying, human trafficking and child abuse.
A trained facilitator teaches students in a traditional classroom setting. Facilitators have access to view, download, and print an age-appropriate lesson plan, resource lists, handouts, and other presentation materials from the online resource center at their convenience.
Effective learning starts in the classroom but continues at home. That’s why every Compass student is given take-home materials, creating a framework for family-wide discussions. Parents are given tips on starting age-appropriate conversations about important topics.
BONUS: Stay at Home Version
Child abuse prevention can never stop – even during a coronavirus pandemic. That’s why Compass includes a stay-at-home version of the Children’s Learning Program. Each family gets a package of age-appropriate take-home materials, discussion frameworks, and more – all designed to keep kids safe during these uncertain times.
